The Roundabout Theatre Company is expected to announce that Academy Award nominee Michelle Williams will star as “Sally Bowles” in a 2014 Broadway revival of the Kander and Ebb musical Cabaret.
The New York Times reports that Williams (“Brokeback Mountain,” “My Week With Marilyn”) has been tapped to play “Sally” opposite the previously reported Alan Cumming (Macbeth) as the “Master of Ceremonies.”
Cumming earned a Tony Award for playing the role in the 1998 revival of Cabaret.
Tony and Academy Award winners Sam Mendes (Gypsy, “American Beauty”) and Rob Marshall (“Chicago,” Kiss of the Spider Woman) will repeat their work as director and co-director/choreographer, respectively. The two earned acclaim for the 1998 revival for the Roundabout.
