Grey Gardens – Last Resort Players
November 1, 2018 @ 7:00 PM - November 3, 2018 @ 9:30 PM
An event every day that begins at 7:00 PM, repeating until November 3, 2018
Last Resort Players is pleased to present “Grey Gardens, The Musical” based on the documentary from the 1970’s which follows the precipitous decline of the wealthy and well connected Bouviers, an aunt and first cousin of Jackie Kennedy Onassis. From their hey-day in their Long Island 28 room mansion in the 30’s to the squalor of a ruin overturn with 50 cats, “Grey Gardens, The Musical” deals with a darkly comic mother and daughter duo who develop a psychological dependency which allows them no escape.
Grey Gardens was a long-time dream of Leah Goodwin, who passed away in late July. Her vision is being brought forth on the flat floor with the orchestra seated on the platform behind the actors. It will be directed by Jason Wood with musical direction of Rhianna Haines, and orchestra conductor Chris Lewis.
Grey Gardens opens at the Florence Events Center Thursday, November 1st and runs through November 4th. Evening performances begin at 7:00 pm and the Sunday matinee is at 2:00 pm. Tickets, $20, can be obtained at the FEC box office (541-997-1994) or online at www.eventcenter.org. This performance is approx. 2 1/2 hrs long with one intermission.
