Michelle Williams to hit Broadway in new Cabaret
NEW YORK (AP) - Michelle Williams will make her Broadway debut next year in a role best known by Liza Minnelli - fishnet-and-bowler hat wearing chanteuse Sally Bowles in Cabaret.
The Roundabout Theatre Company confirmed on Wednesday that the former Dawson's Creek and Brokeback Mountain star will join Alan Cumming in the revival. Williams takes over after Emma Stone withdrew due to scheduling conflicts.
Previews will begin March 21 with an opening set for April 24 at the Roundabout 's Studio 54 theatre on Broadway, the last home of the show, which ran for more than 2,000 performances from 1998 to 2004. It won the Tony Award in 1998 for best musical revival.
Cumming, who will be reprising his 1998 turn as Master of Ceremonies, recently ended a one-man Macbeth.
