J. Wynn Rousuck  Based on the 1975 documentary film of the same name, Grey Gardens is a tragic, frequently funny, and untterly unforgettable musical about two "staunch" and legendary American women: Edity Bouvier Beale, and her grown daugher, Edie.  With a diverse musical songbook, including Tin Pan Alley jigs and soaring ballads, Grey Gardens is a unique tapestry of lost dreams, sacrifice, and unstoppable hope--heartfelt, witty, and compasionate directed by Danielle Robinette and Ryan Haase at Stillpointe Theatre through February 4th.
