Liza Minnelli and Joel Grey Reunite at 40th Anniversary Screening of the Academy Award-Winning Film Musical, Cabaret
Film stars Michael York and Marisa Berenson were also on hand for the event, held at the Ziegfeld Theatre.
Liza Minnelli and Joel Grey, the Academy Award-winning stars of the 1972 film Cabaret, reunited at a screening of the movie musical on Thursday, January 31 at the Ziegfeld Theatre. The event, held in honor of the Bob Fosse film's 40th Anniversary (and forthcoming Blu-ray release), was presented by Turner Classic Movies, Warner Bros. Home Entertainment, and Verizon.
Joining Minnelli and Grey were their on-screen co-stars, Michael York and Marisa Berenson, Bob Fosse's daughter, Nicole Fosse, and Turner Classic Movies host Robert Osborne, who led a Q&A at the screening. Guests included two-time Tony winner Bernadette Peters (Follies), 1950s film star Arlene Dahl (Three Little Words), and cabaret singer Nicolas King, among many others.
Based on the acclaimed musical, which features a score by John Kander and Fred Ebb and a book by Joe Masteroff, as well John Van Druten's play, I Am a Camera, and the pre-World War II Berlin novels of Christopher Isherwood, Fosse's Academy Award-winning film features a screenplay by Jay Presson Allen. The forthcoming Blu-ray release will include a re-mastered edition of the film, a new documentary titled "Cabaret: The Musical that Changed Musicals," vintage documentaries, and a series of memory galleries.
