Joel Grey is known as one of Broadways ultimate stars, having made his name as the Master of Ceremonies in both the original stage and film versions of Cabaret. Fun fact he is one of only seven actors to have won both a Tony and an Oscar for the same role, and in 1972 he beat out Al Pacinos Michael Corleone for best supporting actor at the Academy Awards. Hows that for an offer you cant refuse?
Although Grey is known as a flamboyant star onstage who has held his own beside stars from Liza Minelli to Miss Piggy to Bjork, behind the scenes hes an observer and an accomplished photographer. Joel Greys new photography book, Looking Hard at Unexamined Things, is full of quirky close-ups, highly textured surfaces, detritus, graffiti, and unexpected splotches of color found amid an often bleak landscape. The book costs $40. The star of stage and screen will share his private discoveries at an autographing session tonight.
