She Can Sing, She Can Dance! Meet Broadway's Next Sally Bowles- Emma Stone!
As BroadwayWorld reported earlier this afternoon, Emma Stone will officially take over for Michelle Williams as 'Sally Bowles' in Roundabout Theatre's CABARET revival on Broadway in November. Williams will end her run on November 9, 2014, with Stone taking over on the 11th, and continuing until February 1st. Additionally Tony-winning Emcee, Alan Cumming, and Tony-nominees Linda Emond and Danny Burstein, have extended their runs until late March.
Stone was reportedly in talks to join the show last spring, but had to pull out due to scheduling conflicts. Either way, the theatre is beckoning Stone's return, and we couldn't be happier!
The actress made her feature film debut in Superbad (2007) and later co-starred in The House Bunny (2008), Zombieland (2009), and Paper Man (2009). In 2010, She played the lead role in Easy A, for which she received a Golden Globe nomination. Other notable roles have included 'Eugenia "Skeeter" Phelan' in The Help (2011), 'Gwen Stacy' in the Amazing Spider-Man film series (2012, 2014), and the voice of 'Eep' in the animated film The Croods (2013).
Below, check out Stone singing, dancing and generally clowning around throughout her career, in performances ranging from Easy A to a lip sync battle with Jimmy Fallon!
Stone can sing (plus, she can strip -- an important skill for any 'Sally Bowles')!
And she can dance!
And she can lip sync like a pro (but none of that onstage!)!
What do you think? How will Stone fare as Cabaret's next leading lady?
