So I just heard that Grey Gardens is closing on July 29. What a shame. Grey Gardens is one of the most moving theatrical experiences I've ever had - Christine Ebersole's performance was kind of amazing to the point of being superhuman. I've been obsessed with Youtube videos of it ever since I saw it. Not sure if they'll mean as much to those who haven't seen the show: so much of the pull of Grey Gardens is in the emotional dynamics between Big Edie and Little Edie, which get lost when you just listen to a single song at a time. I'll take a shot, though. Here's Christine singing "Around the World" on some talk show or other.



She gives me shivers. And when that song gets stuck in my head I start to feel like I'm rapid-cycling bipolar after a little while from the sudden mood shifts. But never mind.
