And Almost Starring

Episode 48 - Cabaret

April 27, 2021

On our final week of Oscars month, we’re breaking down the casting of the 1972 musical Cabaret, including everyone else considered for Liza Minelli and Joel Grey’s Academy Award-winning roles: Sally Bowles and the Emcee! Which Bond girl was considered for Sally? Who did Joel Grey say Fosse wanted for the Emcee over him? And how wonderfully bananas is Marisa Berenson’s song on The Muppet Show? Also – Amy Jo talks about playing Fraulein Schneider in college and Jeff and his dad sit through a production of Cabaret featuring – you guessed it – completely nude dancers!


Cabaret stars Liza Minelli, Michael York, Helmut Griem, Fritz Wepper, Marisa Berenson, and Joel Grey; directed by Bob Fosse
