Turner Classic Movies (TCM) continues its latest Road to Hollywood tour around the country with a stop in New York City, where TCM, Warner Bros. Home Entertainment and Verizon FiOS present a free public screening of the Academy Award-winning film "Cabaret" Jan. 31.



The free screening is being held at the famed Ziegfeld Theatre, where "Cabaret" premiered. Show time is 7 PM.

Four of the film's stars — Liza Minnelli, Joel Grey, Michael York and Marisa Berenson — are scheduled to join TCM host Robert Osborne on stage to introduce the 40th anniversary restoration of the film.

The 1972 film version of "Cabaret," directed by Bob Fosse, was awarded eight Academy Awards. In addition to Liza Minnelli and Joel Grey, who both won Oscars for their performances, the movie also featured Michael York, Marisa Berenson and Fritz Wepper. "Cabaret" is based on the Tony Award-winning musical of the same name about a nightclub singer (Sally Bowles) in pre-World War II Berlin and her relationship with a visiting writer (Clifford Bradshaw). The musical features a book by Joe Masteroff, music by John Kander and lyrics by Fred Ebb. The original Broadway production was directed by Harold Prince. The 1998 revival starred Natasha Richardson and Alan Cumming, who won Tony Awards for their performances as, respectively, Sally Bowles and the Emcee.

Although the screening is free, tickets are required for entry. Free tickets may be obtained online by clicking here.
