GOSSIP: Could Sheila Hancock & Jenna Russell star in Grey Gardens?

According to the Daily Mail's Baz Bamigboye, Sheila Hancock and Jenna Russell are in early discussions about the possibility of starring in Grey Gardens.

Directed by Thom Southerland, Bamigboye reports that the musical will run at the Southwark Playhouse in early 2016.

Grey Gardens premiered off-Broadway in 2006 before transferring to Broadway and winning three Tony Awards.

With book by Doug Wright, music by Scott Frankel and lyrics by Michael Korie, the show is based on the 1975 documentary of the same title about the lives of Edith Ewing Bouvier Beale and her daughter Edith Bouvier Beale by Albert and David Maysles.

Hancock's recent credits include Sister Act The Musical (Palladium) and Barking in Essex (Wyndham's), whilst Russell's include Di & Viv & Rose (Vaudeville), Urinetown (St James/Apollo) and Merrily We Roll Along (Menier/Harold Pinter).
