An Evening With Joel Grey (feat. "Cabaret"!)

With only a gesture, a step or a single line, he instantly captures the audience’s attention — and with the rest of the show, he mesmerizes with a brand of storytelling, song and dance that no other performer can duplicate. Simply put, the Tony-winning, Oscar-winning, Golden Globe-winning, BAFTA-winning and Emmy-nominated Joel Grey has always been one of Cinefamily’s super-favorite performers. We’re overjoyed to welcome Joel to our house to discuss his epic and storied career, not only working with world-class collaborators of stage and screen such as Bob Fosse, Lars von Trier, Frank Perry, Robert Wilson, Robert Altman and Steven Soderbergh, but also honing and advancing his magnificently versatile craft over a span of many decades. After the break, we’ll screen Cabaret on 35mm, which contains the defining role of Joel’s film career: that of the wicked, strange, sensual, otherworldly Emcee.
Cabaret Dir. Bob Fosse, 1972, 35mm, 124 min.
