For Final Six Weeks Of Acclaimed Broadway Run, Beginning February 17, 2015.
Emma Stone will play only eight more performances of “Sally Bowles” in Roundabout Theatre Company’s (Todd Haimes, Artistic Director) CABARET. After Stone’s final performance on February 15, 2015, Sienna Miller (“American Sniper,” After Miss Julie) will take over the role of “Sally Bowles” opposite Alan Cumming in the seedy Kit Kat Klub at Studio 54, beginning February 17, 2015.
Sienna Miller made her Broadway debut in Roundabout Theatre Company’s 2009 production of After Miss Julie. She can also be seen in the Academy Award nominated films American Sniper and Foxcatcher.
Emma Stone replaced Michelle Williams on November 11, 2014 and received critical acclaim for her portrayal of “Sally Bowles.” This production of CABARET marked the Broadway debut for the Academy Award nominated actress.
CABARET is playing a limited engagement through March 29, 2015 at the Kit Kat Klub at Studio 54 on Broadway (254 West 54th Street).
For this production of Cabaret, Mr. Mendes and Mr. Marshall converted Studio 54 into the gritty Kit Kat Klub with cabaret-type seating as well as traditional theatre seating, to recreate the decadent environment of the notorious pre-war Berlin Nightclub.
The design team includes 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.
CABARET features some of the best-known songs in musical theatre, including “Willkommen,” “Maybe This Time” and “Cabaret.” John Kander and Fred Ebb are two of the most successful and prolific collaborators in the American Theatre and are currently represented on Broadway with the award-winning revival of Chicago.
Roundabout’s production of CABARET opened on Broadway on March 19, 1998 starring Alan Cumming and Natasha Richardson and won four Tony Awards including Best Revival of a Musical. Alan Cumming received the Tony Award for Best Actor in a Musical. Sam Mendes and Rob Marshall received Tony nominations for direction and Rob Marshall received a Tony nomination for choreography. The production went on to play for six years and 2, 378 performances before finishing its run on January 4, 2004.
CABARET premiered on Broadway in 1966 and won eight Tony Awards, including Best Musical, in addition to the New York Drama Critics’ Circle Award, the Outer Critics’ Circle Award, the Variety Poll of New York Critics, and London’s Evening Standard Award. The original Broadway production played 1166 performances.
