How was your experience?

Clear I hated it I didn't like it It was OK I liked it I loved it!
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 Big Edie and Little Edie in the 70's stole the show. They obviously studied theses women closely in the documentary and played them with love. The staging was creative and beautifully executed. I can see that people who are not fans of the documentary or who are totally unfamiliar with this story might not enjoy this musical. I gave it four stars because there were a couple of numbers that seemed like filler and didn't add to the story. All in all, I would recommend this to anyone who loves the documentary "Grey Gardens," you won't be disappointed!
