RED BANK – Two River Theater will present a free screening of the 1972 film Cabaret, directed by Bob Fosse and starring Liza Minnelli, Michael York, and Joel Grey, to kick off a new series of free events called “Inside Two River.”
The screening at 7 p.m. Tuesday, Sept. 24, in Red Bank’s Riverside Garden’s Park, is offered in connection with Paul Osborn’s play On Borrowed Time – which Grey is directing – as the opening production of Two River’s 20th anniversary season. In the event of rain, the screening will be moved to the Bow Tie Cinema on White Street.
“Inside Two River” is a new series of free events – including open rehearsals, film screenings, literary chats, panel discussions, and more – curated for each of Two River’s productions throughout the season.
Grey originated the role of Cabaret’s Emcee on Broadway and is one of only nine actors to have won both the Tony and Academy Award for the same role. He also received the Golden Globe and British Academy Award for his performance in the film version. He made his theatrical debut at the age of 9 in a 1941 Cleveland Play House production of On Borrowed Time, a magical fantasy about the love between a little boy and his grandfather, who outwit Death and trap him in an apple tree.
Performances of On Borrowed Time continue through Sunday, Oct. 13. Tickets are available from 732-345-1400 or tworivertheater.org.
