Abstract:

Raw interview footage used for the documentary Broadway, the American musical. Stage and screen actor Joel Grey discusses joining the cast of the original Broadway musical Wicked, after its tryout in San Francisco. With music and lyrics by Stephen Schwartz, and book by Winnie Holzman, Wicked is loosely based on Gregory Maguire's best selling novel Wicked: the life and times of the wicked witch of the West. The show opened at the George Gershwin Theatre on Oct. 30, 2003, then settled in for a long run. Grey speaks about his experience joining a show after it has already been set, and his concerns in accepting the part; his role as the Wizard of Oz; his concerns, as the show is about to open, in getting his scenes staged, and his upcoming rehearsals; and whether his role will fulfill the audience's expectations of him as a musical theater performer. Grey speaks about his desire to fulfill his role; his favorite moment in the show, which occurs in his scene in Act II with the witch Elphaba; the large scale of Wicked, and its high level of spectacle, which he has not encountered on any show he has done previously; the show's faithfulness to the idiosyncratic material on which it is based; the significance to him of the show's upcoming opening and its critical response; how he decides to accept a job on Broadway; the differences between performing in England, where a leading actor can perform regularly on the stage, and in New York, where it is difficult to work consistently; how Broadway has changed since he began performing; and the qualities of Wicked he admires.
