London's Oliver-winning Cabaret revival will say willkommen, bienvenue, and welcome to two new stars beginning March 11. Cara Delevingne (Suicide Squad) is set to star as Sally Bowles opposite Luke Treadaway (The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time) as The Emcee.

They will succeed the production's current stars, Rebecca Lucy Taylor (AKA Self Esteem) and Jake Shears, both playing the final performances of their extended run with the revival March 9.

Also joining the cast March 11 as previously announced is Michael Ahomka-Lindsay, succeeding Nathan Ives-Moiba as Clifford Bradshaw. Ives-Moiba's final performance was January 27, and Taite-Elliot Drew is filling in until Ahomka-Lindsay's arrival.

They will join a cast also including Beverley Klein as Fraulein Schneider and Teddy Kempner as Herr Shultz. Nic Myers plays Sally Bowles once a week. Delevingne is scheduled to be absent for 22 performances in March, April, and May, so check the full schedule at KitKat.Club before buying tickets.

"There are no words to explain the excitement I have to return home to make my stage debut in such an iconic role," says Delevingne in a statement. "I am so inspired by the brilliant actors who have played Sally in past productions around the world and in this one in the West End. I cannot wait to be a part of this brilliant cast and production."

Adds Treadaway: "I can’t wait to become a member of the Kit Kat Club and join this extraordinary production. It’s a huge thrill to be asked to take this on and I’m very excited to get started."
