Grey Gardens Presented By StageWorks Fresno
by Terrance Mc Arthur
Long ago, musicals used to be musical comedies, big and splashy, tuneful and fun. Somewhere along the way, they seem to have split into two groups: massive, scenery/effects-driven spectacles, and intimate, rip-the-characters-apart dissections of society. Grey Gardens: the musical has some scenery, but it is peopled with characters grasping, dragging them down, clawing at each other.
