Roundabout Theatre Company (Todd Haimes, Artistic Director) is thrilled to announce Emma Stone has extended her acclaimed run as “Sally Bowles” opposite her fellow 2015 Golden Globe nominee Alan Cumming as “Emcee” until February 15, 2015. Cumming will star in the show for the final 12 weeks of the limited engagement. CABARET opened on Broadway on April 24, 2014 and the engagement has been extended twice through March 29, 2015.
Casting for a new “Sally Bowles” will be announced shortly.
Joe Masteroff, John Kander and Fred Ebb’s Tony-winning musical CABARET is directed by Sam Mendes and co-directed/choreographed by Rob Marshall.
FROM TODD HAIMES, Artistic Director: “I’ve always said that watching Alan Cumming’s first performance as ‘Emcee’ on Broadway in 1998 was one of the most spectacular moments I’ve ever witnessed in the theater. The experience Roundabout has shared with Alan in Sam Mendes and Rob Marshall’s award-winning production is unique and like nothing else we have had in the organization’s 49 year existence. By bringing back Cabaret and Alan’s iconic performance to our subscribers last year, we were able to share this classic with a new generation of theatregoers. We thank Alan and are so proud of Michelle Williams and Emma Stone’s Broadway debuts and look forward to announcing one more outstanding actress to play opposite Alan before the musical ends its run on March 29th.”
The cast also features 2014 Tony nominee Linda Emond as Fraulein Schneider, 2014 Tony nominee Danny Burstein as Herr Schultz, Bill Heck as Cliff, Aaron Krohn as Ernst and Hani Furstenberg as Fraulein Kost.
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.
The Cabaret Kit Kat Klub boys & girls are: Will Carlyon, Kaleigh Cronin, Caleb Damschroder, Benjamin Eakeley, Andrea Goss, Leeds Hill, Kristin Olness, Kelly Paredes, Jessica Pariseau, Dylan Paul, Evan Siegel, Stacey Sipowicz and Katrina Yaukey.
