Mary Romine’s review
When I first saw the musical at the Lyceum Theater in Costa Mesa I hadn't heard of 'Grey Gardens', so I only knew what the Goldstar write-up had written. I went with my sister and was surprised that the topic of two women living in a home that had fallen into ruin could be anything, but bleak. I found my sister and myself laughing at the song lyrics, the dialog and the facial expressions, particularly of the butler. While in the lobby after that performance, we ended up meeting one of the actors who encouraged us to watch the documentary 'Grey Gardens'. I found the documentary online for free viewing, watched it, and bought a ticket to see the musical a second time now that I understood the musical better. I loved the production both times. Excellent cast, excellent singing and dancing, excellent topic to ruminate on.
