The Emmy, Tony and Oscar award winner Joel Grey looks back at a sensational career that has spanned seven decades. It all started back at the Cleveland Playhouse when he was just 9 years old and still flourishes on Broadway and in Hollywood to this day.
In this episode, Mr. Grey talks about how he overcame antisemitism, hid from his sexuality, and made his way from the nightclub circuit to the bright lights of Broadway where he originated his famous role as the M.C. in Cabaret, a role that brought him a Tony and an Oscar.
Wonderful stories throughout this episode including gems about Cabaret and the movie’s director Bob Fosse, his co-star Liza Minnelli and many more.
