The raves have been unanimous for star Christine Ebersole and her spectacular dual performance as the older (in flashbacks) and younger of two eccentric cousins of Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis, who were discovered living in squalor in East Hampton, N.Y. in the 1970s and chronicled in a famous Maysles Brothers documentary. But this rich and affecting musical is more than just a star vehicle, well deserving of its 10 nominations. Unfortunately, it will have a tough awards night because of Spring Awakening.
Tony Outlook: Ebersole is a likely winner for Best Actress; otherwise, the show will probably be a worthy also-ran for most of the evening.
