Emma Stone will make her Broadway debut this fall when she steps into the Roundabout Theatre Company’s acclaimed revival of “Cabaret.” Stone will play nightclub singer Sally Bowles, a role originated in this production by Oscar nominee Michelle Williams.
Williams will continue as Sally until Nov. 9. Stone’s limited run in the show begins Nov. 11 and goes through Feb. 1, 2015.
“Cabaret” opened at the Kit Kat Klub at Studio 54 in April. The revival is a restaging of Sam Mendes and Rob Marshall’s 1998 Tony Award-winning production, which starred the late Natasha Richardson as Sally and Alan Cumming as Emcee.
Cumming returned as emcee for the current restaging, and will remain in his Tony-winning role through March 29, 2015. Linda Emond and Danny Burstein, who were both Tony-nominated for their work in “Cabaret”, will also continue with the production through the end of March. That means there’s room for Stone to extend her run, or for another actress to step into the role.
This isn’t the first time Stone’s name has been attached to the Roundabout’s “Cabaret.” The 25-year-old actress was linked to the show back in 2013, during initial announcements for the production, but had to back out due to scheduling conflicts.
This also isn’t the first time Stone will be singing professionally. Long before “Easy A” and “The Help,” Stone competed (as “Emily Stone”) on a VH1 reality singing show called “In Search of the New Partridge Family.” Stone won the 2004 competition, though sadly “The New Partridge Family” series never made it to air.
