Dolores Gray, the late star of film and the New York and London stage, will be saluted during an upcoming broadcast of "Jamie deRoy & friends," the New York City cable television program dedicated to broadening the cabaret audience.
The Oct. 22 airing will feature a March 1992 interview with the late star; comic Mario Cantone also joins in. The interview is a lively half-hour of talk and repartee with the multi-talented Gray.
Directed by Barry Kleinbort, "Jamie deRoy & friends" will air in the metropolitan area on Time Warner Cable channel 67 and RCN channel 110. Broadcast time is 8 PM.
On Broadway, Dolores Gray starred in Seven Lively Arts (1944), Are You With It? (1945), Two on the Aisle (1951), Carnival in Flanders (1953), Destry Rides Again (1959), Sherry! (1967) and 42nd Street (1980). However, she scored her greatest stage successes in the London mountings of Annie Get Your Gun and Gypsy as well as the West End production of Stephen Sondheim's Follies, where Gray stopped the show nightly with her rendition of "I'm Still Here." Ms. Gray died June 26, 2002, at the age of 78.
Jamie deRoy, a stand-up comic, singer and hostess, has been a longtime fixture on the New York cabaret scene. Her most recent CD, "Jamie deRoy & friends — Volume 3: 'Tis the Season," was released in 2001 by Harbinger Records. —By Andrew Gans
