Going for Goosebumps -- guest blogger Jude
I LOVE live theater. I'm definitely in it for the goosebumps. You can laugh and cry at home, but tingles only come from seeing it live. Grey Gardens, Actor's Express 22nd season opener, was amazing. What a crazy concept to make it a musical from Jackie O's eccentric relatives demise, but it worked and was tremendously entertaining. Act I takes place on the day of Little Edie's engagement. Mother Edie drives the Kennedy boy away (Joe). Both Edies and the house go downhill in Act II. Special treat were a young Lee and Jackie Bouvier. A former AE intern was in the audience using one of her season tickets, awarded to each intern for the next season (great idea). Check out the rest of AE's season at www.actors-express.com.
