Emcee squared: Joel Grey and Eddie Redmayne on ‘Cabaret’

Eddie Redmayne had never seen “Cabaret” when, as a 15-year-old student at Eton, he was first cast as the Emcee, the indecorous impresario of the bawdy Berlin nightclub where the musical is set. So Redmayne did what anyone wondering about the character would do: He watched the 1972 film, and studied Joel Grey’s performance.

Redmayne, 42, has played the Emcee three more times — at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe following high school; in London’s West End, winning an Olivier Award in 2022; and now on Broadway, where he has just picked up a Tony nomination.

“Cabaret,” set in 1929 and 1930, is about an American writer who has a relationship with a British singer working at the Kit Kat Club; the queerness of some of that nightclub’s habitués and the Jewishness of some of its neighbors become risk factors as the Nazis gain power.

Redmayne had never met Grey, who originated the role on Broadway in 1966 and who went on to win both Tony and Academy Awards as the Emcee. So I asked them to lunch, to talk about a character both have played several times, and about a musical that has continued to move audiences.

We met at Le Bernardin — Grey’s choice — and for two hours they shared stories, Redmayne reverential and thoughtful, Grey puckish and supportive. At times, when words seemed insufficient, Grey reached out to clasp Redmayne’s hand.

Although the lunch was the first time Redmayne and Grey had had a real conversation, they had greeted each other a few days earlier, on Grey’s 92nd birthday, when the actor, accompanied by his actress-daughter, Jennifer, attended a “Cabaret” performance; as the two arrived, the starry crowd (including the musical’s 97-year-old composer, John Kander) rose to its feet.

At curtain, Redmayne, who also has an Oscar and a Tony (for “The Theory of Everything” and “Red”), paid an emotional tribute to Grey’s performance as an inspiration for his career, led the crowd in singing “Happy Birthday” and presented Grey with a pineapple-shaped cake (pineapple, as a treasured fruit, is the subject of a “Cabaret” song).

There was no pineapple at our lunch, but there were other delights (Grey turns out to be partial to sea urchin).

These are edited excerpts from the conversation.

EDDIE REDMAYNE: My family have just left. I don’t know how you found it, Joel, but I have two young children, and we always thought we would travel together and do everything together, but they’ve just started new schools in London.

MICHAEL PAULSON: They’re too young to see “Cabaret,” right?

REDMAYNE: They are, in theory. How old were yours when they saw it?

JOEL GREY: Jennifer was glued to the proscenium arch. She would go with me to every matinee.

REDMAYNE: This is wonderful, because my kids have been singing the music for years. It’s so inappropriate!

PAULSON: Do you explain anything?

REDMAYNE: They’ve seen little snippets of numbers. My wife thinks it would go over their head and they would just like to see it. But my fear is more for the patrons. “There’s a 7-year-old and a 6-year-old here?”

PAULSON: So you guys had not met before last Thursday?

REDMAYNE: This is pretty much our first time of meeting proper. It’s very surreal to be doing it in recorded company. My first interaction with Joel was on our opening in London, and I opened a card from him, and I’ll never forget that moment. That coupled with the other evening, when I knew Joel was in, but I didn’t know where he was sitting, and we caught each other’s eye, and Joel went like this to me [puts his hands over his heart, and then reaches out] and I’ll never, ever forget that moment.

Tony Award Nominee Eddie Redmayne on CABARET on Broadway

14 years ago, Eddie Redmayne won his first Tony Award for his stellar performance in Red, which also marked his Broadway debut. Now he is is back, not only with a nomination for his performance in Cabaret, but as a producer on the 9-time Tony-nominated revival.

“What we’re trying to do is tell Cabaret for the now,” he told Richard Ridge. “There’s a sort of urgency to it. I’ve seen so many beautiful productions of Cabaret and I hope ours is a new investigation into it.”

Watch as Eddie chats more about meeting John Kander, why this show means so much to him, and so much more. Plus, check out who he is up against and catch up on all the latest Tony Awards coverage!

Eddie Redmayne on Audience Interaction and the “Chaotic Wonder” of Performing in ‘Cabaret’

Redmayne received a Tony nomination Tuesday for his performance as the Emcee in the new, immersive revival of ‘Cabaret.’

Eddie Redmayne received his second Tony Award nomination Tuesday, for his role as the shape-shifting Emcee in the Broadway revival of Cabaret.

It’s a role the actor, known for leading films such as The Theory of Everything and in the Fantastic Beasts series, played during the production’s previous West End run. And while he’s already put his own spin on it, with the Emcee evolving from master of ceremonies at the Berlin nightclub at the center of the show to something more sinister, Redmayne said he’s still finding more to explore.

“He’s so enigmatic that he’s endlessly compelling to keep trying to mine and investigate,” Redmayne said.

Part of that exploration also comes as this Cabaret has the audience sitting surrounding the stage, and in a theater has been transformed with three levels of bars, which are used for a pre-show. All of this leads to a production that can change nightly, or as Redmayne calls it, “live theater in its chaotic wonder.”

In addition to Redmayne’s nod, the production itself, which also stars Gayle Rankin, Bebe Neuwirth and Steven Skybell, received eight other Tony Awards nods, including best revival of a musical. Redmayne is also a producer of the show.

Redmayne (who previously won a Tony Award for his role in the 2010 production of Red) spoke with The Hollywood Reporter immediately after the nominations Tuesday about finding the character, vocal preparation for the role and what can happen with an energetic audience sitting in the round.

Eddie Redmayne lands Tony nomination for role in Cabaret

Eddie Redmayne has been nominated for a Tony Award for his starring role in the Broadway production of Cabaret.

The British star has already won an Olivier Award for his turn as the Emcee in the hit show, which he first performed in London’s West End.

He is nominated for the best leading actor in a musical prize at the Tonys, alongside Brody Grant for The Outsiders, Jonathan Groff for Merrily We Roll Along, Dorian Harewood for The Notebook and Brian D’Arcy James in Days Of Wine And Roses.

The revival of the hit show first transformed the West End’s Playhouse Theatre into the Kit Kat Club and transferred to Broadway this month.

The show is still running in London, starring Luke Treadaway and Cara Delevingne.

Redmayne starred opposite Irish actress Jessie Buckley as Sally Bowles in London, but in New York the role is being performed by Gayle Rankin, who is nominated in the best actress in a musical category.

A number of famous faces are in the running for big prizes at the Tony Awards this year, with Succession’s Jeremy Strong nominated in the best actor in a play category for An Enemy Of The People.

He will compete against Dopesick’s Michael Stuhlbarg for Patriots, The Good Place’s William Jackson Harper for Uncle Vanya, Hamilton’s Leslie Odom Jr for Purlie Victorious: A Non-Confederate Romp Through The Cotton Patch and Ray Donovan’s Liev Schreiber for Doubt: A Parable.
