‘I’ve got to get to New YOork’

Those fabulous society cave-ins Edith Bovier Beale and Little Edie Beale have decamped in high style (turned low rent) East Hampton environs in an inventive multi-tech set at the Roberts Theatre. The Philadelphia Theatre Company opens the creaky shutters of the musical version of Grey Gardens.

I finally figured out why the documentary film and now this musical has such a gay following- its camp appeal, Kennedys and Bouviers natch, but also because it is Whatever Happened to Mommie Dearest.
