Grey Gardens -- The Musical

When: Wednesdays-Saturdays, 8 p.m. and Sundays, 2 p.m. Continues through July 30 2016

Albert and David Maysles' iconic 1975 documentary Grey Gardens captures the precarious situation of Edith and Edie Beale. The reclusive mother-daughter team was holed up in their run-down East Hamptons mansion, which they shared with various raccoons and glorious memories of Little Edie's salad days. It would have been just another hard-luck tale for a once-wealthy family, except the Beales were direct relations of Jackie Kennedy. The hermetic dream world the two lived in, Little Edie's fabulous fashion sense and the cheerful-mournful dynamic between them has been translated into the musical Grey Gardens, with book by Doug Wright, music by Scott Frankel and lyrics by Michael Korie. Max & Louie Productions presents the highly anticipated Grey Gardens -- The Musical at 8 p.m. Wednesday to Saturday and 2 p.m. Sunday (July 8 through 30) in the Wool Studio Theatre at the Jewish Community Center (2 Millstone Campus Drive, Creve Coeur; www.maxandlouie.com). Tickets are $35 to $45.
