Emma Stone will receive a willkommen, bienvenue and welcome from the Broadway community this fall.
The "Amazing Spider-Man" actress will succeed Michelle Williams in the current Broadway revival of "Cabaret" from the Roundabout Theatre Company in New York. Producers announced on Wednesday that Stone is scheduled to start her run as Sally Bowles on Nov. 11 and will continue with the musical through Feb. 1.
The revival, which opened at Studio 54 in April, will mark Stone's Broadway debut. She will star opposite Alan Cumming, who is extending his time with the musical through March 29.
"Cabaret," directed by Sam Mendes and Rob Marshall, is a revival of the Roundabout's 1998 revival production that won multiple Tony Awards and ran for close to six years on Broadway. The original New York production of this staging starred Natasha Richardson as Sally Bowles and Cumming as the Emcee.
Stone can currently be seen in Woody Allen's period film "Magic in the Moonlight." She also has a role in the upcoming Broadway-themed movie "Birdman," which is set to open this fall and stars Michael Keaton as a former action star trying to revive his career by mounting a play in New York.
