Brigid Brady (The Phantom of the Opera), Gregg Edelman (City of Angels, Wonderful Town), Josh Grisetti (Enter Laughing) and Rachel Ulanet (Beauty and the Beast, LoveMusik) star. Expect songs from Cabaret, George M!, Chicago, Wicked, The Grand Tour and other shows that have starred the Oscar and Tony Award-winning actor.
Grey is not expected to appear. He's busy with the weekend matinees of Broadway's new revival of Anything Goes. Michael Montel wrote and directs the show (playing 3 PM both days), part of the museum's performance series that borrows themes from new exhibits there. Lawrence Yurman is musical director.
Director-conceiver Montel told Playbill.com, "Grey Music NYC draws its songs from the productions that had Joel Grey as a member of its original cast. Of Course Cabaret and Anything Goes are represented, but so are the the wonderfully melodic scores by Jerry Herman and Larry Grossman for The Grand Tour and Good Time Charley, respectively, as well as Charles Strouse, who wrote both music and lyrics for a number in the 1956 Phoenix Theatre production of The Littlest Revue, a song called 'I Lost the Rhythm.' Grey's work as a photographer will also be part of this weekend's performances."
Museum of the City of New York is at 1220 Fifth Avenue at 103rd Street in Manhattan. For tickets, visit www.mcny.org or call (917) 492-3395.
