Saw Grey Gardens again, really terrific the 2nd time around. It really is a must see. Christine Ebersole is astounding.
And the lyrics, they are really genuis - the more I listen to it, the more amasing I find the meter and ryhme scheme - I love lines of lists like: "Cottage Cheese, Chamomile, Doctor Norman Vincent Peale"
and then there is:
"Jerry doesn't want any sex with you; he wants one his own age; Jerry doesn't want any sex with you; Jerry sees a different girl every night; He doesn't want one with cellulite"
I have the recording of the off-Broadway version. Some songs have been added/dropped/changed, and I am looking forward to the Broadway recording. I hope they are doing one - if they haven't already have done one.
I'm glad that I have the off-B'way recording though, becuase they changed the lyrics from "Being Bouvier" to "Marry Well" - I prefer the former to the latter.
I am dying to do a downtown version of the documentary with Hattie as Little Eddie and as Big Eddie????? Hapi "Jerry likes my corn" Phace?
