Celebrating 25 years of Cagney and Lacey. December 21st, 2007.
Books and Books Coral Gables is hosting a night of reading and discussion with two special guests; author Barney Rosenzweig and actress Sharon Gless who will be celebrating the 25th Anniversary of the famous television series Cagney and Lace and the launching of Rosenzweig's new book Cagney and Lace …and Me.
Barney Rosenzweig began his show business career as an MGM office boy in 1959, and rose to become one of television's most honored producers, winning two Emmys for Best Television Series for Cagney and Lacey, and a Golden Globe for Best Mini-series for John Steinbeck’s East of Eden. He most recently took flyers on Broadway, with the audience pleasing Elvis Presley homage, All Shook Up, and into the world of publishing with his memoir, Cagney and Lacey…and Me.
Sharon Gless is best known for her portrayal of New York Police Detective, Christine Cagney, on the hit series Cagney and Lacey, a role that garnered her two Emmys®, a Golden Globe®, and six Emmy® nominations. Following Cagney & Lacey, Gless re-teamed with the show's executive producer, Barney Rosenzweig, on The Trials of Rosie O'Neill, for which she was awarded her second Golden Globe® and two more Emmy® nominations.
In 1991, Rosenzweig married his third wife, multi Emmy-award winning actress Sharon Gless. They reside on Fisher Island in Florida, where Rosenzweig, quoting playwright Terrence McNally, says he “hasn’t retired, he’s stopped,” conceding the difference to be subtle. The producer goes on to note that his “best productions” are daughters Erika, Allyn and Torrie and the “spin-offs”, grand daughters Hailey, Greer and Zoey B.
