Grey Gardens at the Ensemble Theatre

The New York Times described Grey Gardens as “an experience no passionate theatregoer should miss.” Luckily for Cincinnati, the Tony Award winning Grey Gardens is coming to the Ensemble Theatre during the month of September. Showing from 9/10 – 9/28, the musical will have 20 performances at the ETC. You can purchase tickets for as little as $35 for adults and $16 for children under the age of 12.

Due to extreme popularity a couple of dates have already been added. So be sure to get your tickets early for the performance of your choice. Shows at the Ensemble typically start around 7:30pm or 8pm. It makes for a great evening if you grab dinner/drinks at Jean Robert’s Lavomatic that is literally just steps away from the entrance to the theatre.

You can purchase tickets online, by telephone (513-421-3555), or by visiting the box office at 1127 Vine Street (Google Map) in the heart of the Gateway Quarter.

From cult film to cult musical! Behind the closed doors of a dilapidated mansion, alongside fifty cats and piles of rubbish, live East Hampton’s most notorious recluses: two beautiful and delightfully eccentric women who just happen to be the cousins of a Kennedy. Nominated for ten Tony Awards®, including Best Musical, and based on the groundbreaking documentary by David and Albert Maysles, Grey Gardens features a book by Doug Wright, the Pulitzer Prize-winning author of I Am My Own Wife.
