Betty Buckley and Rachel York will bring “Grey Gardens” to LA’s Ahmanson Theatre this summer
Titanic the Musical will no longer be a part of Ahmanson Theatre’s current season and will be replaced by … Grey Gardens starring Betty Buckley and Rachel York!
Oh, I am so there!
Are you kidding me?
It was announced today that the show, which had a run at Bay Street Theater in New York earlier this year, is directed by Michael Wilson and will run July 2 through Aug. 14.
The musical is based on the 1975 documentary film by Albert and David Maysles about two eccentric women living in a tumble-down Long Island mansion. The musical premiered on Broadway in 2006 and received 10 Tony nominations.
Center Theatre Group’s artistic director Michael Ritchie said in a statement: “This is a classic piece of Americana that intrigues with a touching story of riches to rags that is both hilarious and heartbreaking. It is a pleasure to bring the legendary Betty Buckley and to welcome back Rachel York (‘Anything Goes’) to Los Angeles in this lauded Bay Street Theater production.”
