NEW YORK, N.Y. – Emma Stone, who last year abandoned appearing in the Broadway revival of “Cabaret,” might still be in need of fishnets and a bowler hat.
Roundabout Theatre Company said Monday that Stone is in negotiations to make her Broadway debut as Sally Bowles. She would take over from Michelle Williams, who has extended her run as Bowles opposite Alan Cumming through Nov. 9.
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.”
Williams stepped into the role, once played by Liza Minnelli, when Stone had to withdraw due to scheduling conflicts.
