I can't imagine it as a musical. I have seen the Public Broadcasting production of it the film and the documentary of the film being made and don't recall any reference to a musical production in the works. No Offense, but the thought sort of horrifies me, really.

It got an extremely good review in the NY Times, and Maysles was pretty enthusiastic about it. Ben Brantley concludes:
"Watching this performance is the best argument I can think of for the survival of the American musical." Pretty high praise from Brantley.

I saw Grey Gardens. It was really good. Very funny. I think I even nominated one of the songs from it (Revolutionary Costume of the Day) for some of the year end polls. I highly recommend (and I went in very skeptical).
