Exciting Casting Announcement

Posted on: October 7th, 2013 by Todd Haimes

 

I am thrilled to announce that Danny Burstein and Linda Emond will join Michelle Williams and Alan Cumming in the upcoming production of Cabaret. Danny will play the role of Herr Schultz, and Linda will take on the role of Fraulein Schneider.

It is truly an honor to have Danny and Linda back with us. Danny was last seen at the Laura Pels Theatre in Talley’s Folly, and he can currently be seen in The Snow Geese on Broadway.  Linda was in 1776 with us and starred in Death of a Salesman last year. They will tackle the love story of Herr Schultz and Fraulein Schneider (and a pineapple) amidst the rise of Hitler’s regime in Berlin. With six Tony nominations between them, Danny and Linda’s performances are sure to be extraordinary.

Cabaret Revival News

As you may have heard already, in 2014 we are reviving Cabaret at Studio 54 starring Alan Cumming and Michelle Williams. Sam Mendes (director) and Rob Marshall (co-director and choreographer) both return to stage their Tony Award-winning production, along with the original design team.

Cabaret marked a milestone for Roundabout, and I couldn’t be happier to see Studio 54 converted back into the Kit Kat Klub once again. Sam, Rob, and Alan have enjoyed incredible success since we first mounted this production in 1998, garnering even further renown (and countless awards) for their film, television, and theatre work. Michelle, a three-time Academy Award nominee (Brokeback Mountain, My Week with Marilyn), will be making her Broadway debut in this production, and I am certain that her Sally Bowles will be a fresh take on one of the greatest musical theatre roles ever written.

Putting together this production has been no easy feat, and the work is just beginning for all of us. I am extremely excited to revisit Cabaret, one of Roundabout’s most beloved productions, and I look forward to sharing it with a whole new audience.

I encourage you to subscribe now and save more than 50% off of tickets to Cabaret or sign up for our Email Club to purchase single tickets before the general public.
