Four Broadway legends—Joel Grey, Barbara Cook, Sheldon Harnick and Mary Rodgers—will grace the stage at 92Y on January 21 to share life lessons and stories as part of the venue's Relevant Octogenarians series.
WNYC’s Leonard Lopate will moderate the panel, which features in-depth conversations with some of Broadway’s greatest living entertainers. The interviews will focus on the enduring star power and relevance of Grey, Cook, Harnick and Rodgers, who have been mainstays of the Broadway stage for decades.
Grey is a Tony winner best known for his celebrated performances in Cabaret, Wicked, George M!, Goodtime Charley and The Grand Tour. He recently starred in the Broadway revival of Anything Goes. Legendary actress Cook starred in Candide, Sondheim on Sondheim, She Loves Me and The Music Man (which earned her a Tony). Harnick is the Tony-winning lyricist for shows like Fiorello!, She Loves Me, The Apple Tree and, most famously, Fiddler on the Roof. Rodgers, the daughter of Broadway composer Richard Rodgers, wrote music for Once Upon a Mattress and Working.
