Emma Stone makes her risqué Broadway debut in Cabaret
Broadway's Cabaret is already causing quite the stir, what with Shia LaBeouf getting so excited during a performance that he had to be kicked out, and now there is even more reason to get excited about the show, because Emma Stone is joining the cast.
Producers of the John Kander-Fred Ebb musical revival at Studio 54 confirmed that the actress will replace Michelle Williams in the role of Sally Bowles, ABC News reports.
Williams will be leaving the show on Nov. 9. and the Easy A actress will be taking her place in the revival of Tony Award-winning production, from Nov. 11 to Feb. 1. Alan Cumming, who plays the chilling Emcee, will remain cast alongside Stone, as he has extended his contract to March 29.
Rumors started circling earlier this month that the ginger-haired beauty may be headed to Broadway, and now that it's confirmed, we think that she's a great choice for the role. When it comes to theater, Stone is no rookie, and she was an active participant at the Valley Youth Theatre while growing up in Phoenix, Arizona.
Set in 1931 Berlin, Cabaret revolves around the KitKatClub and how it becomes increasingly intertwined with the outside world, which gets even more uncertain as the Nazis take over.
Stone was meant to debut in Cabaret earlier this year, but was forced to drop out due to scheduling conflicts. However, we'll be thrilled to get a chance to see her in November, and she's following in the footsteps of some very big stars.
Other actresses to have played the role of Sally Bowles include Liza Minnelli, Jill Haworth, Gina Gershon, Lea Thompson, Alyson Reed and Judi Dench, among others.
