Life is a Cabaret for Michelle Williams
It’s time to bust out all your old “Dawson’s Creek” DVDs! Why? Because you’ll want to rekindle your Michelle Williams obsession in time for this mega-star’s Broadway debut. That’s right, the three-time Academy Award nominee is officially coming to the Great White Way to star as Sally Bowles in Cabaret. And after the way she moved—and sang—in 2011’s My Week with Marilyn, there’s no question she’s suited for the part.
The 1998 Cabaret revival on Broadway was nominated for 10 Tony Awards and won 4—and many of the things that made that production so great are staying the same, including choreographer Rob Marshall and Tony-winner Alan Cumming in the role of the M.C. But Williams promises a new—and very exciting—twist.
Cabaret begin previews at Roundabout’s Studio 54 theater in NYC March 21 and opens April 24.
I know I’ll be first in line for tickets!
