Broadway photos, then and now

ZoŽ, her fellow cast and crew members, plus special guests are pictured at the first night of City Center's Zorba! revival, which took place on 6 May, in a great series of photos on Broadway.com.

The special guests include Bartlett Sher, who directed one of ZoŽ's previous Broadway productions, Awake and Sing!, in 2006. He is pictured backstage with ZoŽ, celebrating the success of Zorba!

In another great Broadway photo, this time from 1981, ZoŽ poses with her father, Sam Wanamaker, following a benefit performance of Acting Shakespeare. As the photographer, Adrian Bryan-Brown, points out, ZoŽ was appearing in Piaf at the time Ė her Broadway debut.

Zorba! begins on Broadway tonight!

6 May 2015 15:37

It's almost here! Following yesterday's dress rehearsal (watched by an audience of specially invited guests), New York City Center's revival of the life-affirming musical Zorba!, starring ZoŽ as mysterious innkeeper Hortense, will have its first public performance tonight. BroadwayWorld.com has several great photos from the show.

The return of Zorba! to the stage (it was last seen on Broadway during the 1980s) has been enthusiastically heralded by Playbill today. The final production in City Center's 2015 Encores! season, the musical runs from 6-10 May. It marks the first time ZoŽ has appeared on-stage in a musical since 1975, and so is sure to be a treat for fans in the US.

Let's wish ZoŽ and everyone else involved with the production Ė co-stars John Turturro, Santino Fontana, Elizabeth A. Davis, Marin Mazzie, director Walter Bobbie, and many more Ė all the very best!
