Grey Gardens

Tomie is looking forward to the premiere of "Grey Gardens" on HBO this coming Saturday. Tomie became fascinated with the Beales of Grey Gardens after seeing the documentary "Grey Gardens." The story became a hit Off-Broadway, and Tomie got the CD soundtrack. When the show was moved to Broadway, Tomie went to see it, and became even more fascinated. He also has the CD soundtrack of the Broadway production, and the 2006 follow-up documentary, "The Beales of Grey Gardens."

Jessica Lange and Drew Barrymore star in this HBO TV event. Tomie couldn't be more excited.

The Beales were "an eccentric mother-daughter team who were related to Jacqueline Bouvier Kennedy, but chose to live in a rotting, reeking shell of a Camelot in the otherwise pristine Hamptons."
