This was a remarkable staging of Grey Gardens. It is staged in the round, which is very effective! So well cast and preformed...I hope to see it again before it leaves Seattle. A great night at the theater, up close and personal!!

The venue was amazing, as always. The props were high class and well done. The layout, actors, positioning - all perfect. Great actors, great pipes!
The screenplay and dialogue, the 'play' itself, however, was less than mediocre. We were...continued

Amazing performances. Saw this show on Broadway and this rivals those performances. Theatre in the round works well with this production.

Superb acting and beautiful singing. I was in tears by the end of the first act. Utterly charming - and spot-on. I've seen the documentary, and the actresses completely nailed their depictions of "Big" and "Little" Edie.

This unpleasant, uninteresting musical production is also marred by faux Long Island accents that are occasionally indecipherable.

This was one of the finest productions I have seen at ACT -- and all the productions I've seen have been first-rate, so that is saying a lot. The second act , especially, was very credible, and heart-wrenching -- to see the intensity of this...continued

A wonderful production all-around! I will admit, I was sceptical at first, I'm a huge fan/borderline obsessed with the documentary so I thought a musical could be really awful or really great. All the actors were great but the actresses playing...continued

Grey Gardens was absolutely wonderful. I highly recommend it. Be sure to watch the documentary first to familiarize yourself with these extraordinary characters.

Story was reviting. Acting AMAZING! Didn't like the music. There is parking at the convention center right under the ACT.

This was my first visit to the ACt theater, so I did not know what to expect. It is a lovely old theater in the round with only about 7 rows, so no seat is a bad one. This particular show was excellent. It is a small cast but some good talent. ...continued

To the management:
Was unable to attend due to family emergency. Was wondering if I could get two tickets to attend, really want to see this production. Had (2) will call tickets for Cindy Martinez for Saturday at 2:00.
