Grey Gardens composer Scott Frankel informs me that the long-promised documentary on bringing the original "Grey Gardens" documentary to the stage will start airing on PBS next Tuesday, December 23rd.
Of course, local PBS stations set their own schedules, so follow this link and check with your local affiliate for air times in your vicinity. In the Boston area, the program will run on December 25th at 3 AM (TiVo to the rescue!) and December 28th at 9:04 PM. You can watch a preview of the new documentary at PBS's Independent Lens Web site.
Although recent revelations about Christine Ebersole's wacky personal beliefs have soured me considerably on this admittedly talented performer, I remain an ardent fan of Grey Gardens, and of Scott Frankel. I eagerly look forward to seeing his new show, Happiness, when it premieres in February at Lincoln Center.
