grey gardens–best broadway musical of the season

ben brantley, in a ny times roundup of the broadway musicals of this year, has called “grey gardens” the best musical of the season.

problem is, “grey gardens” wasn’t a broadway show–it was an off broadway show. as he acknowledges, while making his point about the dearth of good musicals this year.

still, he’s right, from what i’ve seen and read. i loved the show. congratulations to everyone involved with the show–it was my favorite theater experience this year. and it’s broadway bound, so go see it when it arrives.

hopefully by then they will have fixed the howard hughes “spruce goose” anachronism.
