The story, based loosely on the documentary of the same name about Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis' reclusive aunt and cousin, isn't as interesting as it sounds at first and the songs are immediately forgettable. It's hard to believe this was a 2007 Tony Award nominee for Best Musical. The painfully slow play begins in 1941 with Little Edie's failed engagement to Joe Kennedy and subsequent falling out between her and her mother, Big Edith. Act 2 looks in on them 30 years later: The mansion, Grey Gardens, has become, as one tabloid described it, "a 28-room litter box," Edith is bedridden and Edie is, as the blue bloods are called, "eccentric," yet has been her mother's primary caregiver for the past two-plus decades. Laura Duvall-Whitson is the cast's standout, playing Edith in Act 1 and Little Edie in Act 2 - though Act 2 is Duvall-Whitson at her best, where she energetically gets to ham it up and belt out songs in various odd "costumes." Erin M. Rettig as young Edie is fine, though her duet with Daniel Robert, as Joe Kennedy, "Goin' Places," is a wreck. Susan Page Freeman as the elderly Edith is very sweet and gets to sing a few lovely notes. Sadly, though, D. Scott Robinson never gets the cast as a whole to gel, and with such marginal material, it makes for two and a half hours of rarely interrupted monotony.
