Emma Stone To Make Broadway Debut In Cabaret

Emma Stone is stepping into Michelle Williams' shoes to make her Broadway debut in Cabaret.

The Roundabout Theatre Company said the Spider-Man star will take to the stage at the Studio 54 theatre for the first time on November 11.

She will play Sally Bowles alongside Alan Cumming, who plays Emcee.

Set in 1931 Berlin, Cabaret centres on the world of the indulgent Kit Kat Klub as it becomes intertwined with the world outside, which gets more precarious as Nazis take over.

The songs by John Kander and Fred Ebb include Willkommen and Tomorrow Belongs to Me.

Brokeback Mountain star Williams first stepped into the role this spring when Stone had to withdraw due to scheduling conflicts.

Shia LaBeouf was arrested for being disorderly and disruptive during one of the performances in June.

Liza Minnelli won a best actress Oscar for playing Sally Bowles in the 1972 film directed by Bob Fosse.

In addition to Minnelli and Williams, the part of Bowles has been played by Jill Haworth, Gina Gershon, Melina Kanakaredes, Natasha Richardson and Judi Dench, among others.

The current show is a revival of a revival. Also starring Cumming, it ran for more than 2,000 performances from 1998 to 2004 and won the Tony Award in 1998 for best musical revival.
