Meet mother-daughter duo "Big Edie" and "Little Edie" Bouvier Beale, the aunt and first cousin of former First Lady Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis. Based on the 1975 documentary about the pair of aging aristocrats in their dilapidated East Hampton mansion, this Tony-winning musical -- part drama, part comedy with a twist of camp -- recreates the women's early years as stylish socialites and then captures them 32 years later as they continue to live in a time capsule of finery despite the fact that their mansion crumbles to pieces around them. Their majestic 42-room home, Grey Gardens, is overrun by cats, lacks running water and has been cited for repeated health code violations that threaten to have it condemned. This otherworldly musical captures all the turmoil and nostalgia of their lives in a script that aligns closely with the acclaimed documentary, as well as songs that earned the Broadway show album a Grammy nomination. Grey Gardens returns to Vintage Theatre starring Megan Van De Hey in her Henry Award-winning role. Learn More

I got to be the fly on the wall with the Lyon family as they reached this pivotal event in their family life. The characters were real (I have known families similar to this), and the events were real. There was lots of laughter as the audience recognized in themselves those unflattering characteristics in the family members, and sadness as we felt their pain. The selection of these actors to portray this family was a good one, and they represented this family well. I would recommend this theater performance to all adults who enjoy good theater.
About the Ticket Supplier: Vintage TheatreVintage Theatre Productions was founded by Craig Bond and friends in August 2002, over martinis. This evening spent with friends launched our mission to bring the best quality theatre to the Front Range! We entered our space on 17th Avenue in 2008 and temained there for four years as we grew our company artistically. In March 2012 we decided to purchase our new location at 1468 Dayton St Aurora 80010, joining the Aurora Arts District.
We staged two shows the first year, nine in 2012...and now have three performance spaces under one roof with the Jeffrey Nickelson Auditiorium (145 seats), the Bond Trimble Theatre (67 Seats) and our lobby raised stage (60 seats). All areas are completely sound proofed, air conditioned, and provide a full bar service. And of course free parking!
