Early in 2009, I wrote an essay for the site Twin Cities Daily Planet about why I love Little Edie Beale and the documentary Grey Gardens. Then I reviewed Grey Gardens (the musical) when it opened at The Ordway in St. Paul.
Today I found out that my essay, Why I love Grey Gardens (and Edith “Little Edie” Bouvier Beale) was the second-most read article of the year on TC Daily Planet’s site. The list of the top ten “most read” for the site can be found here. I’m on the list with stuff about the Minneapolis schoolboard, Ethiopia and the best bars to meet single women. Sweet!
Kicking off the new year with love for Little Edie is fabulous. Stay tuned for more Little Edie news in the next few days!
