A mercurial, multi-talented fixture of the Broadway stage since the 1950s, Oscar-winning actor Joel Grey rose to fame as the sinister Master of Ceremonies in Cabaret, which earned him both the Tony Award for the 1966 stage production and the Oscar for Bob Fosse's 1972 film adaptation. A consummate singer, dancer and skilled actor, Grey's greatest successes were on Broadway, where he starred in such memorable shows as "Stop The World - I Want To Get Off," "George M!," and "Wicked." His film output was somewhat less substantial, though he was a fixture of episodic television from the early 1970s through the new millennium, earning an Emmy nomination in 1991 for a guest role on "Brooklyn Bridge" (CBS, 1991-93). For many, Grey was first and foremost a Broadway star, and he would return to the Great White Way on numerous occasions, even into his late seventies with a critically praised revival of "Anything Goes" in 2011. Throughout all the facets of his career, from young hopeful to actor on the rise and Oscar winner to his prolific period as a character player in the 1990s and 2000s, Grey remained the symbol of elegance, economy and class both in front of and away from an audience.
