On This Day: Joel Grey’s Birthday
Today marks the 86th birthday of Joel Grey, best known for his role as Master Of Ceremonies in Cabaret. He has enjoyed a stellar career both on screen and on stage, receiving the Oscar Hammerstein Award for Lifetime Achievement in Musical Theatre in 2016.
Did you know: Grey is one of only nine actors to have won an Oscar and a Tony for the same role. His performance as Master Of Ceremonies in Cabaret on Broadway, and later opposite Liza Minelli in the Oscar-sweeping classic, merited the well-deserved accolade!
