THE SOUTH FLORIDA PREMIER of
GREY GARDENS, the Musical
Rising Action Theatre is honored to present the South Florida Premiere of the Tony Award-winning Grey Gardens, the Musical. Based on the highly acclaimed 1975 Maysles Brothers film documentary, it is the story of Jackie Kennedy’s relatives “Big Edie” Bouvier Beale and her adult daughter “Little Edie” and the overgrown, crumbling East Hampton mansion they shared for decades. Set at the Grey Gardens mansion, the musical follows the progression of the lives of the two Edies from their original social status as wealthy and polished aristocrats in the 1940’s to their eventual existence as penniless eccentrics in a crumbling home. But, the real focus is clearly on the unending psychological struggle between a mother and a daughter. The story is joyous, heartwarming, sad, and funny.

“An experience no passionate theatregoer should miss! A Tour de Force!” — New York Times

“Grey Gardens is more than a unique and unmissable musical: IT’S A GIFT!” — Rolling Stone

Grey Gardens brings to life both the delightfully eccentric aunt and the cousin of Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis. Once among the brightest names in the pre-Camelot social register, these two women became East Hampton’s most notorious recluses, living in a dilapidated 28-room mansion.

Set in two eras – in 1941 when the estate was in its prime and in 1973 when it was reduced to squalor – the musical tells the alternately hilarious and heartbreaking story of two indomitable women, Edit Bouvier Beale and her adult daughter “Little” Edie.

RISING ACTION THEATRE – 954-561-2225 For directions and more information.
NOTE THAT THE $64 TICKETS INCLUDE A DINNER PACKAGE THAT IS OPTIONAL. MOST GROUP MEMBERS ARE GOING ONLY TO THE SHOW.

The Adjustment Bureau

Very very mixed reviews of this movie. Seven guys showed up for this movie. Four of us gave it 4-stars while one person gave it a total thumbs down. Another said it was anti-climatic and another said it started very slowly.

Personally, I gave it 4-stars. I usually don’t like sci-fi, but I do like political thrillers and this had that element. I was able to buy into the concept of an outside force controlling our “free will” and I loved the fedoras. Matt Damon is a hunk, no two ways about that and a great actor on top of that. Emily Blount has never much impressed me as a lead actress, but I thought this role showcased her talents and gave her a charismatic character that I empathized with. She was in love with Matt Damon. The ending was pretty predictable.
