Christine Ebersole, currently seen on Broadway in Steel Magnolias, performed a cabaret with musician Billy Stritch on July 18, while the co-creators of Grey Gardens—a new musical she's slated to star in—were in the audience.

Ebersole will headline the premiere production of Grey Gardens at Playwright Horizons during its 2005-06 season. I Am My Own Wife pen Doug Wright provides the libretto, while Scott Frankel scores the show and Michael Korie writes the lyrics.

At left, Ebersole is seen with Sally Mayes and Stritch after the performance. Below, Wright, Ebersole and Frankel are seen at the post-show reception at Birdland on West 44th Street in New York City.
