Author IntroductionJoe Masteroff (born December 11, 1919) is a Tony Award-winning American playwright.
Born in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, Masteroff graduated from Temple University and served with the United States Air Force during World War II. He studied with the American Theatre Wing from 1949-1951 and began his career as an actor, making his Broadway debut in The Prescott Proposals in 1953.
Three years later, when Hal Prince gained control of the rights to John Van Druten's play I Am a Camera and The Berlin Stories by Christopher Isherwood, he discarded the book for a musical adaptation already written by Sandy Wilson and hired Masterhoff to fashion his own. With lyrics and music by Kander and Ebb, Cabaret won the Tony for Best Musical and ran for 1165 performances.
Cabaret is a 1972 American musical film directed by Bob Fosse and starring Liza Minnelli, Michael York and Joel Grey.
The film is loosely based on the 1966 Broadway musical Cabaret by Kander and Ebb, which was adapted from The Berlin Stories of Christopher Isherwood and the play I Am a Camera. Only a few numbers from the stage score were used; Kander and Ebb wrote new ones to replace those that were discarded.
Following a national tour, Masterhoff's first play, The Warm Peninsula, opened on Broadway in 1959 with Julie Harris, June Havoc, Farley Granger, and Larry Hagman in the lead roles. In 1963 he wrote the book for the Sheldon Harnick-Jerry Bock musical She Loves Me, which garnered him a Tony Award nomination for Best Author of a Musical.
Masteroff's next and final Broadway project, 70, Girls, 70 (1971), was less successful, closing exactly one month after it opened.
