Joel Grey won a Tony Award for his role as the Emcee in the original Broadway production of Cabaret. He later repeated the role on film to Oscar-winning effect. Grey's other theatrical credits include roles in George M!, Goodtime Charley and The Grand Tour, receiving Tony nominations for all three productions. A Kennedy Center honoree, Grey was last on Broadway in the Tony-winning revival of Chicago. The actor is also a best-selling author; his book of photographs, "Pictures I Had to Take," is available from PowerHouse Books.
