“Drift Away” – Grey Gardens
Music: Scott Frankel Lyrics: Michael Korie
Allow yourself to drift away in the compelling true story of an eccentric mother and daughter whose story first came to light in the documentary film Grey Gardens, upon which this musical is based. The film about former socialites-turned-recluses living at a dilapidated mansion in the Hamptons premiered in the U.S. on this day in 1975. This fanciful tune recalls the glamour of an old Hollywood romance which sadly, you know isn’t going to end well.
