The Studio Theatre’s _Grey Gardens _will reinvent the world of this musical by uniting the two acts of the play through production and design, creating a cohesive world for both the glittering 1941 Grey Gardens and its decaying 1975 counterpart. With no seat more than eight rows from the stage, the audience will have the chance to experience this xtraordinary production up close with the actors singing without enhanced amplification. From Russell Metheny’s daring set to Alex Jaeger’s gorgeous costumes, the world of this Grey Gardens will come to new life for those who love the Maysles’ documentary,for those who love the musical and for those who just love theatre.
