Hope you have a wonderful time playing Jackie. Grey Gardens is very close to my family's heart, as my daughter originated the role of Jackie when the creative team had their Florida workshop back in 2004. We were sooooooooooooooooo excited to see Christine Ebersole and Mary Louise Wilson win Tony awards last year. We have lots of pictures of my dd and both of them together.

It's a great role, a great woman to play, and I'm sure you'll enjoy every minute of it.

Best wishes and break a leg!

GREY GARDENS is an incredible show and you will really enjoy being in it. Try to see the Maysles documentary if you can; even though the focus is on Big and Little Edie, you will get a sense of who these women were and what colorful people they were.

Break a leg and enjoy your experience!

I was impressed with Grace's talent on the Annie tour, but also with the way she handled performing the title role. I agree with Noels' comments about Grace's integrity, as well. Good luck in your new role !
