Reuters: "Grey Gardens" blooms -- Bouvier recluses revisited

Grey Gardens” is in bloom again, 30 years after the documentary film about the reclusive, eccentric relatives of Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis living in a dilapidated mansion known by that name. Edith Bouvier Beale and her daughter Edie, the aunt and cousin of the late first lady, come to life on stage in a musical “Grey Gardens” opening on Tuesday for a month’s run at a small theater that could lead to Broadway.
