The box office for the Broadway revival of Sam Mendes and Rob Marshall's Tony-winning production of Cabaret, starring Tony winner Alan Cumming and Oscar nominee Michelle Williams, opens for one week Nov. 11 at noon with tickets on sale to the general public. 



The opening celebration offers theatregoers the chance to purchase $54 tickets for the first four performances of Cabaret, which will begin Broadway previews March 21, 2014.

Fifty-four tickets at $54 are available for each of the first four performances, and the first 100 theatregoers in line on Nov. 11 are guaranteed access to the $54 ticket with a limit of two tickets per person.

Also on Nov. 11, ticket buyers are entered to win a prime cabaret table at the first performance on March 21, and anyone with proof of purchase from the previous 1998 Roundabout production (Playbill or ticket stub) will win prizes, including free Roundabout subscriptions, a copy of the libretto and more.

At the Roundabout Theatre Company box-office opening, a costume and prop display from the 1998 production will be set up, and complimentary refreshments will be offered. VIP packages will also be available to purchase.

The Studio 54 box office will be open Nov. 11 at noon-Nov. 17 at 8 PM and will reopen in January 2014. Tickets can also 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).

As previously announced, Williams, an Oscar nominee for her performances in "My Week with Marilyn," "Blue Valentine" and "Brokeback Mountain," will make her Broadway debut alongside Tony Award winner Cumming in Cabaret, which will play a 24-week limited engagement. Opening night is set for April 24, 2014.

Cumming (Macbeth, Threepenny Opera, Design for Living) will reprise his performance as Emcee, the show's master of ceremonies and the role that earned him the 1998 Tony Award for Best Actor in a Musical. Williams will make her Broadway debut as nightclub singer Sally Bowles.

The cast also includes two-time Tony nominee Linda Emond as Fraulein Schneider and four-time Tony nominee Danny Burstein as Herr Schultz.

Academy Award winner Mendes (director) and Academy Award nominee Marshall (co-director/choreographer), who were Tony-nominated for their work on the 1998 production, will return to recreate their direction and choreography from the 1998 Tony Award-winning production.

Cabaret features a book by Joe Masteroff, music by John Kander and lyrics by Fred Ebb. It is based on the play by John Van Druten and stories by Christopher Isherwood.

Complete casting will be announced at a later date.

The original design team will also return for the 2014 production, including set and club design by Robert Brill, costume design by William Ivey Long, lighting design by Peggy Eisenhauer and Mike Baldassari and sound design by Brian Ronan. Patrick Vaccariello is the musical director.

Roundabout's production of Cabaret opened on Broadway March 19, 1998, starring Cumming and Natasha Richardson and won four Tony Awards, including Best Revival of a Musical and Best Actor in a Musical. The production played for six years through Jan. 4, 2004. Cabaret premiered on Broadway in 1966 and won eight Tony Awards, including Best Musical.

Studio 54 is located at 254 West 54th Street. Tickets are currently available to Roundabout subscribers and donors, and will be available to the public in the coming weeks. For more information, call (212) 719-1300 or visit RoundaboutTheatre.org.
