"I Am a Camera" on Broadway
In 1951 John van Druten’s stage adaptation of Christopher Isherwood’s novel “Goodbye to Berlin” opened on Broadway at the Empire Theater. Julie Harris won her first Tony Award for playing the bohemian nightclub singer Sally Bowles. In this opening night review, New York Times theater critic Brooks Atkinson finds Harris "extraordinarily gifted" but dismisses the play as an entertaining trifle, and notes that the emphasis on comedy leaves "much that is crucial ... hanging in the air."
"Cabaret" on Broadway
In 1966, Joel Grey is billed below the four stars (Bert Convy, Jack Gilford, Jill Haworth and Lotte Lenya). For the 1987 revival, his picture is on the front of the Playbill and he receives above-the-title billing. Do you remember who starred in the 1998 Roundabout Theatre revival? Read the Playbills from the 1966, 1987 and 1998 Broadway productions.
