The Dress Circle: Spotlight on Joel Grey

This week’s Dress Circle (8/22 7:00 p.m.) is shining a spotlight on Joel Katz who became a favorite of Broadway audiences as Joel Grey.  He made his Broadway debut (as Joel Kaye) in a 1951 revue of the music of his father, Mickey Katz, entitled “Borscht Capades.”  Sadly, there don’t seem to be any recordings of him at the tender age of 19 in this show, but we do have Grey’s performances in many of his other starring roles on Broadway including: “The Grand Tour,” “George M!”, “Goodtime Charlie,” the revival of “Chicago,” a revival of “Anything Goes,” and, of course, his work in Kander and Ebb’s “Cabaret.”   It’s an hour of Joel Grey, and perhaps, you’ll hear him in an unfamiliar role!
