News   Los Angeles' Paley Center for Media to Present An Evening with Joel Grey
 
Tony Award winner Joel Grey, who created the role of the M.C. in Cabaret — and re-created it on film and in a 1986 revival — will be celebrated at Los Angeles' Paley Center for Media in January.

An Evening with Joel Grey will be presented at the California venue Jan. 18, 2011, at 7 PM. The evening will feature a one-on-one discussion between Grey and Pat Mitchell, president and CEO of The Paley Center for Media.

The program, according to press notes, will "celebrate the storied, multi-decade television career of Oscar, Tony, Golden Globe and BAFTA award-winning actor Joel Grey."

His television credits span the gamut from his earliest appearances in the 1950’s on series with Steve Allen and Eddie Cantor, to his Emmy-nominated turn on CBS’ “Brooklyn Bridge” to more recent performances on “Oz,” “House” and “Grey’s Anatomy.” The evening will also feature a video retrospective of Grey’s memorable (and some rarely seen) television work.

Grey will return to Broadway in spring 2011 to play the quirky "public enemy" Moonface Martin in Roundabout Theatre Company's Anything Goes.

Tickets for to the discussion are $20 ($15 for Paley Center Members); tickets for the discussion plus a post-event reception with Grey are $75. All tickets are available online at www.paleycenter.org, by phone at (866) 811-4111, and in-person at the Paley Center Front Desk (465 North Beverly Drive, Beverly Hills, CA).
