Grey Gardens, a docu-drama musical based on the film documentary of the same name, is currently playing in its world premiere run at Playwrights Horizons on West 42nd Street in Manhattan. The show concerns the real-life eccentric aunt and cousin of Jackie Bouvier Kennedy Onassis, and explores their co-dependence as they slip from society's genteel silver frame into a life of tarnish and ruin. Doug Wright penned the book, Michael Korie the lyrics.
