Having seen Christine Ebersole on Broadway in "Grey Gardens", the Musical in 2006, including opening night with Al Maysles and 5 other performances it was an exhilarating pleasure to see and hear her in concert in
Guild Hall (East Hampton).

     She won a Tony Award for her "Grey Gardens" performance in which she played both "Big Edie" and "Little Edie" Bouvier Beale to standing ovations nightly.
     I was honored to invite Lois Wright to the performance.  Lois lived at "Grey Gardens" in the 70's and was there when the Maysles Bros. (Albert and David) filmed their world famous cult documentary "Grey Gardens". 
She is in the film's birthday party scene.

     Lois is a writer* and painter** and for over 20 years has produced her own talk show "The Lois Wright Show" on LTV Wainscott/E.Hampton.

     Before this 7/31/10 performance, Lois presented Christine with two of her new prints with Little Edie and two cats - one in a light blue background and the other in a pink background.

     Richard Novak, East End master home builder and "Grey Gardens" art collector, also attended.  He is a friend of Albert Maysles, and met "Little Edie" and "Big Edie" in the 1970's and then drove them home to "Grey Gardens".
     Christine's show had a quartet accompanying her superb voice - piano, bass, drums and clarinet/saxaphone.  There was a selection of American classics.  After Intermission, she came out with a scarf around her head "a La 'Little Edie'" Bouvier Beale and received an ovation for her
Tony Award Broadway performance. 
She did a few songs from the musical.

     It was a relaxing, elegant and delightful performance.  Some of the quests included Matthew Broderick,
Sara Jessica Parker, William Hurt, Dina Merrill and Tom Hartley as well as Ruth Appelhof, executive Director of the Guild Hall.  Josh Gladstone, Artistic Director of the
John Drew Theater was also in attendance.

     It was a brilliant evening and to quote the 11 year old "Little Edie" from her 1929 Diary's opening line: 
 "I only mark the hours that shine."
