The Toronto premiere of Grey Gardens is fast approaching and one question remains – what are you going to wear? Let Little Edie give you a little fashion advice…
Watch the promo video below to hear Lisa Horner sing “The Revolutionary Costume for Today” from Act 2 of Grey Gardens, a song featuring lines ripped directly from the 1976 documentary this musical is based on. After you watch the music video (also featuring Nicola Lipman as Big Edie, and special guest star Catsby), watch the documentary clip below to spot the similarities!
