Roundabout Theatre Company has officially announced that three-time Academy Award nominee Michelle Williams will star for the first time on Broadway as 'Sally Bowles' in its upcoming revival of Cabaret by Joe Masteroff, John Kander and Fred Ebb. She will take the stage at Studio 54 alongside Alan Cumming, reprising his Tony Award-winning role as the Emcee.

Academy Award-winner Sam Mendes (director) and Academy Award nominee Rob Marshall (co-director/choreographer) will return to recreate their Tony-nominated direction and choreography from the 1998 Tony Award-winning production.

CABARET will play a 24-week limited engagement beginning previews on March 21, 2014 and open officially on April 24, 2014 at the newly transformed Kit Kat Klub at Studio 54 on Broadway (254 West 54th Street)

Start spreading the news—Liza Minnelli can't wait to see Michelle Williams playing Sally Bowles in Cabaret when she makes her Broadway debut next year in a revival of the legendary musical.
It was announced earlier this week that the Brokeback Mountain star will play opposite Minnelli's good friend Alan Cumming as Emcee (he earned a Tony for the same role in a 1998 revival).
"Michelle is a wonderful actress and I love Alan Cumming," Minnelli exclusively tells me. "I'm excited to see what they will do with the show and am sure it will be great!"
Minnelli won an Oscar for her now-iconic portrayal of Sally in Bob Fosse's 1972 movie adaptation.

THANK GOD it's not Anne Hathaway like it was rumored a few months ago. Very happy with Michelle Williams and I'm so excited at the chance to see Alan Cumming's emcee since I was only 8 when this production ran in 1998. I'm still disappointed I missed his Macbeth

This was announced yesterday but didn't see it posted here
