First look: Emma Stone as Sally Bowles in 'Cabaret'
Let’s give Emma Stone a warm willkommen to Broadway.
The 25-year-old actress will make her Broadway debut—finally—in just under a month, stepping into the silky stockings of club singer Sally Bowles in the hit Broadway revival of Cabaret. Prior to her first go-round at the Kit Kat Klub, EW has the first look at Stone’s seductive style in the flashy, Tony-winning role.
Stone replaces Michelle Williams, who made her own Broadway debut in the role when the Roundabout Theatre Company revival of the classic Kander and Ebb musical opened at Studio 54 earlier this year. Williams departs on Nov. 9, and Stone will take over from Nov. 11 through Feb. 1, 2015, but the common link is their Emcee: powerhouse performer Alan Cumming, who won a Tony for the mischievous role in the same production in 1998, will continue in the part through March 29 (while also appearing on The Good Wife, no less).
In an appearance last night on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon promoting her new film Birdman, Stone chatted about her history with Cabaret. “I saw it in New York for the first time with Alan as the Emcee when I was nine years old, which is the most inappropriate show to take a nine-year-old to,” laughed Stone. “Do not bring a child!”
