Summer will find the multiply Tony- and Drama Desk-nominated Grey Gardens–The Musical (July 6-August 14) sprouting. Doug Wright, Scott Frankel and Michael Korie’s show is an adaptation of the famed 1975 Albert and David Maysles documentary that also inspired a 2009 HBO telefilm that won six Emmys and two Golden Globes. It concerns the insular life led by reclusive former socialites Edith “Big Edie” Beale and daughter Edith “Little Edie” Beale. Broadway vets Rachel York and Betty Buckley (1983 Tony winner for “Cats”) have been announced as the main cast, in the roles that earned their Broadway performers Tony nominations.
