Friends and family of Joel Grey, including daughter Jennifer Grey, Ben Vereen, Kathleen Marshall and Anything Goes castmates, were on hand April 12 to help celebrate the opening of the "Joel Grey/A New York Life" exhibit at The Museum of the City of New York as well as Grey's 79th birthday.
The exhibition at the Museum of the City of New York is an overview of Grey’s artistic life in New York City. It includes photographs, posters, playbills, and costumes from several of Grey’s productions, including the iconic Emcee costume from Cabaret, a crown worn in Goodtime Charley, and an original costume sketch for George M!. Original caricatures of Mr. Grey by legendary artist Al Hirschfeld are also on view.
In addition to the displays chronicling Grey's career, the exhibit also displays a selection of his acclaimed photography. The work on display focuses lovingly on small details of the urban environment, including graffiti, architectural details, and sidewalks.
Here's a look at the celebration:
