The musical masterpiece returns, direct from Broadway!

We are proud to announce casting for the national tour of Sam Mendes (Spectre, American Beauty) and Rob Marshall’s (Into the Woods and Chicago, the films) Tony Award®-winning production of Cabaret. Randy Harrison, best known for his portrayal of Justin in the Showtime drama “Queer as Folk,” will step into the role of the Emcee while Andrea Goss, a veteran of Roundabout’s Cabaret on Broadway will return to the role of Sally Bowles when the tour premieres in Providence, RI at the Providence Performing Arts Center with performances beginning Tuesday, Jan. 26. Joining them are Shannon Cochran (August: Osage County) as Fraulein Schneider, Alison Ewing (Cabaret/Broadway,) as Fraulein Kost, Mark Nelson (Picasso at the Lapin Agile) as Herr Schultz, Ned Noyes (You Can’t Take It With You) as Ernst Ludwig and Lee Aaron Rosen (The Normal Heart) as Clifford Bradshaw.

The cast will also include Kelsey Beckert (Seven Brides for Seven Brothers), Sarah Bishop (42nd Street), Margaret Dudasik (Chautauqua!), Hillary Ekwall (How the Grinch Stole Christmas), Lori Eure (Cabaret/Broadway), Aisling Halpin (Peter and the Starcatcher), Leeds Hill (Cabaret/Broadway), Andrew Hubacher (Cabaret/Broadway), Joey Khoury (Altar Boyz), Tommy McDowell (American Idiot), Evan D. Siegel (Cabaret/Broadway), Dani Spieler (Legally Blonde) and Steven Wenslawski (Spamalot).

John Kander, Fred Ebb and Joe Masteroff’s Tony-winning musical features some of the most memorable songs in theatre history, including “Cabaret,” “Willkommen” and “Maybe This Time.” Cabaret is set in the infamous Kit Kat Klub, where the Emcee, Sally Bowles and a raucous ensemble take the stage nightly to tantalize the crowd––and to leave their troubles outside.

The creative team for the North American tour includes original direction by Sam Mendes, original co-direction and choreography by Rob Marshall, tour direction recreated by BT McNicholl (Spamalot), tour choreography recreated by Cynthia Onrubia (Victor/Victoria), set design by Robert Brill (Assassins), costume design by William Ivey Long (Chicago), lighting design by Peggy Eisenhauer (Ragtime) and Mike Baldassari (“Nine”), sound design by Keith Caggiano (The Radio City Christmas Spectacular) based on the Original Broadway design by Brian Ronan with hair and wig design by Paul Huntley. Cabaret features orchestrations by Michael Gibson (The Boy From Oz), music supervision & vocal arrangements by Patrick Vaccariello (On Your Feet) and music direction by Robert Cookman (Spiderman: Turn Off the Dark). Cabaret is based on the play by John Van Druten and stories by Christopher Isherwood.

Following the run in Providence, the tour will continue on to more than 20 cities during its first season. For tour dates, locations and more information, visit the tour website.

Sienna Headshot 2013 credit James D KellyI am thrilled to announce that Sienna Miller will be taking over the role of Sally Bowles, starring opposite Alan Cumming beginning February 17. Sienna made her Broadway debut in our production of After Miss Julie in 2009. She is an immense talent, and can currently be seen on the silver screen in both American Sniper and Foxcatcher. I am so excited she has agreed to return to Roundabout, as Cabaret’s final leading lady!

Sienna Miller will take over for current star Emma Stone, whose final performance is February 15, and play “Sally Bowles” for the final six weeks of the limited engagement through March 29, 2015.

Final 12 weeks to see Cabaret on Broadway

Posted on: January 5th, 2015 by Roundabout

 

Emma Stone has extended her acclaimed run as “Sally Bowles” for two weeks through February 15, 2015!

Alan Cumming will continue to star as “Emcee” for the final 12 weeks through March 29, 2015!

We are thrilled to announce Emma Stone has extended her acclaimed run as “Sally Bowles” opposite her fellow 2015 Golden Globe nominee Alan Cumming as “Emcee” until February 15, 2015. Cumming will star in the show for the final 12 weeks of the limited engagement through March 29, 2015 on Broadway.

Casting for a new “Sally Bowles” will be announced shortly.

LR_CabaretES0286rOur Artistic Director, Todd Haimes: “I’ve always said that watching Alan Cumming’s first performance as ‘Emcee’ on Broadway in 1998 was one of the most spectacular moments I’ve ever witnessed in the theater. The experience Roundabout has shared with Alan in Sam Mendes and Rob Marshall’s award-winning production is unique and like nothing else we have had in the organization’s 49 year existence. By bringing back Cabaret and Alan’s iconic performance to our subscribers last year, we were able to share this classic with a new generation of theatregoers. We thank Alan and are so proud of Michelle Williams and Emma Stone’s Broadway debuts and look forward to announcing one more outstanding actress to play opposite Alan before the musical ends its run on March 29th.”
