First look: Emma Stone as Sally Bowles in 'Cabaret'

Let’s give Emma Stone a warm willkommen to Broadway.

The 25-year-old actress will make her Broadway debut—finally—in just under a month, stepping into the silky stockings of club singer Sally Bowles in the hit Broadway revival of Cabaret.

Emma Stone to make Broadway debut in 'Cabaret'

It’s official: Emma Stone will make her Broadway debut in the current Roundabout Theatre Company revival of Cabaret.

The 25-year-old will replace Oscar nominee Michelle Williams, who made her debut in the role of showgirl Sally Bowles when the revival opened at Studio 54 in April. Stone will take over as Sally beginning Nov. 11 (Williams exits Nov. 9) and will play the role until Feb. 1, 2015.

Alan Cumming—who won a Tony Award for his portrayal of the show’s Emcee in the 1998 Broadway production, which serves as the basis of this revival—will extend his run through March 29, 2015, thus confirming that yet another actress may get to tread the Cabaret boards before the show’s run is through.

Stone was linked to the show in 2013 during Roundabout’s initial announcement, but film scheduling conflicts forced her to back out. Last week, word broke that she had entered negotiations to join the show when Williams vacates the iconic role.

Unrelated but completely related, Stone’s beau Andrew Garfield made his Broadway debut in 2012’s Death of a Salesman. Again, unrelated… but completely related.

Maybe this time, Emma Stone will be in Cabaret.

The 25-year-old actress is in negotiations to make her Broadway debut as Sally Bowles—the role currently played by Michelle Williams—in Roundabout Theatre Company’s revival of Cabaret, EW has confirmed. Williams recently extended her run in the classic 1966 Kander and Ebb musical through November 9, 2014; the show itself is slated to play a limited engagement through January 4, 2015.

Broadway box office: Denzel Washington's 'Raisin in the Sun' is season's biggest hit

There are no dreams deferred for the producers of the Denzel Washington-led revival of A Raisin in the Sun. In its first full week since its April 3 opening, director Kenny Leon’s well-reviewed revival earned a remarkable $1.18 million, according to figures from the Broadway League covering ticket sales for the week ending April 13. That makes it the fifth highest-grossing show of the week and the only non-musical to cross the seven-figure threshold. And thanks to premium ticket prices as high as $348, Raisin actually exceeded the estimated gross potential of the Ethel Barrymore Theatre by 16 percent. READ FULL STORY

Michelle Williams to make Broadway debut in 'Cabaret'

Three-time Academy Award nominee Michelle Williams will make her Broadway debut as Sally Bowles in Roundabout Theater Company’s revival of Cabaret.

Cabaret will play a 24-week limited engagement, beginning previews March 21 and officially opening April 24 at the Kit Kat Klub: Studio 54. Williams will appear alongside Alan Cumming as the Emcee, who starred in the last revival of the musical in 1998. The production will be directed by Sam Mendes and co-directed/choreographed by Rob Marshall.

“Michelle Williams is an actress of rare gifts and she will make an astonishing Sally Bowles,” says Rob Marshall. And I am especially excited that Alan Cumming is reprising his extraordinary performance as the Emcee for a whole new audience to experience.”

'Liza & Alan': Wasn't It Swell?

Koitz

During Alan Cumming’s Tony-winning turn as the Emcee in Cabaret on Broadway, Liza Minnelli (who, obviously, won an Oscar for playing Sally Bowles in Bob Fosse’s 1972 film) went to see him backstage. She was so in awe of his brilliant performance that she said, “Alan, I want to be your friend forever.” In an era of celebrity air kisses that make no physical or emotional contact, that could have been the equivalent to, “Nice to meet you.” But if one thing was clear during last night’s wonderfully fun (and, sure, flawed… not that anyone cared) Liza & Alan at New York City’s Town Hall (a one-night performance that sold out so quickly a second night was added), Liza meant what she said.
