Perfectly Marvelous! Emma Stone Will Join Broadway's Cabaret; Revival Extends Again
20 Aug 2014
Golden Globe nominee Emma Stone, known for her film work in "The Help," "Easy A" and "The Amazing Spider-Man," will make her Broadway debut as Sally Bowles in the revival of Cabaret, Roundabout Theatre Company announced Aug. 20.
Stone — who was previously considered for the role when Cabaret announced its Broadway return, but was unable to be involved due to commitments for a film project — will begin performances Nov. 11 for a run through Feb. 1, 2015.
Additionally, the production will extend its limited engagement through March 29, 2015, and Tony-winning star Alan Cumming as well as 2014 Tony Award nominees Linda Emond and Danny Burstein will extend their runs through closing.
Performances were originally on sale through Jan. 4, 2015. The production officially opened April 24 at Studio 54.
Academy Award winner Sam Mendes (director) and Academy Award nominee Rob Marshall (co-director/choreographer), who were Tony-nominated for their work on the 1998 production, return to recreate their direction and choreography from the 1998 Tony Award-winning production. Once again, they convert Studio 54 into the gritty Kit Kat Klub, with cabaret-type seating as well as traditional theatre seating, to recreate the environment of the notorious pre-war Berlin nightclub.
Studio 54 is located at 254 West 54th Street. Tickets can be purchased online at RoundaboutTheatre.org, by phone at (212) 719-1300 and at Roundabout's American Airlines Theatre box office (227 West 42nd Street) or Laura Pels Theatre Box office (111 West 46th Street).
Holed up in a seedy motel on the edge of the Mojave Desert, two former lovers unpack the deep secrets and dark desires of their tangled relationship, passionately tearing each other apart. Led by director Daniel Aukin (Back Back Back at MTC, 4,000 Miles), Tony winner Nina Arianda (Venus in Fur at MTC, Born Yesterday) and Sam Rockwell (A Behanding in Spokane, The Way Way Back) bring an explosive intensity to Sam Shepard’s (Buried Child, True West) landmark myth of the new Wild West.
