Last night, philanthropist and art world icon, Agnes Gund, hosted an intimate social soirée at a private New York City residence, in celebration of Joel Grey’s new memoir Master of Ceremonies.


Slated to hit bookshelves on February 16, Grey, the award-winning actor, singer, dancer, and photographer, reflects on his extraordinary personal story in the read—from his childhood theatre days in Cleveland, Ohio, to his roller coaster love life, to following his dreams and taking on the Broadway stage, starring in acclaimed musicals such as Cabaret, Chicago and Wicked. 


Guests in attendance were all smiles as they posed for photos with the author (and a copy of the book in hand, of course). Attendees included Isabel and Ruben Toledo, Bianca Jagger, Ric Ocasek, Catherine Talese, Gay Talese, Blair Brown, Harry and Pamela Belafonte.
