Photo Flash: Joel Grey & Jon Robin Baitz in Conversation for MCNY

The Museum of the City of New York (MCNY) presented Joel Grey & Jon Robin Baitz / In Conversation, a rare dialogue between the Tony® and Oscar®-winning actor and acclaimed photographer Joel Grey and his friend and colleague: playwright, screenwriter, and television producer Jon Robin Baitz (Other Desert Cities, "Brothers & Sisters") last night, August 1. Joel Grey & Jon Robin Baitz / In Conversation was presented in conjunction with MCNY's current exhibition Joel Grey / A New York Life, on display through Monday, August 8.

Joel Grey & Jon Robin Baitz / In Conversation focused on Grey's dual careers as actor and photographer, and how the two art forms intersect. Baitz has unique insight into Grey's work, as both his personal friend and fellow theater artist. Baitz penned an essay entitled "Joel Grey / A Close Up Magician," which explores Grey's various artistic passions and the relationships between them. The essay is currently on display as part of Joel Grey / A New York Life.

Joel Grey / A New York Life, examines the enduring impact that acclaimed actor Joel Grey and his adopted city have made on each other. Through rare artifacts from his stage and screen career, objects from his personal collection, and his own photography, MCNY offers a unique look at New York through Grey's eyes as well as a visual retrospective of his career.

The exhibition caps a landmark year for Grey, who is represented with two concurrent Broadway productions this spring: starring in the Roundabout Theatre Company's Tony® Award-winning production of Anything Goes and co-directing (with George C. Wolfe) the Tony® Award-winning Broadway premiere of The Normal Heart.
