On the latest Chatterbox with Alan Cumming, Seth asks Alan if he wants to comment on Cabaret coming back and if he'd play the Emcee again. This is the first I heard of it, is this actually coming to New York, maybe for a limited engagement?

I remember there was talk about it within the last few years, but nothing concrete.

Yeah, there's been revised "talk" about Roundabout bringing it back next season.

, "Seth asks Alan if he wants to comment on Cabaret coming back and if he'd play the Emcee again."

How did Alan respond?

I'd love for it happen with Alan Cumming again.

Or they could bring the production that 5th Avenue did to New York. It was great too!

Some people can get a thrill, knitting sweaters and sitting still. That's okay for some people, who don't know they're alive!

Can't say, but it is 150% true and guaranteed, unless Studio 54 is sucked down to hell like Carrie White's house. And even then, they may try to find an alternate space.

This is ridiculously exciting. Just to think of how many brilliant actresses working in NY and LA today who could make a brilliant Sally Bowles makes my mouth water. I never got to see the Mendes revival, actually I've never seen CABARET on stage even though it's my favorite film of all time, a first-rate Broadway revival would be so great. Let the casting speculation begin.

Alan didn't give a real answer but he was smiling and all signs pointed to it being true.

I'd love to see Marianne Faithful as Fraulein Schneider.
If anyone ever tells you that you put too much Parmesan cheese on your pasta, stop talking to them. You don't need that kind of negativity in your life.

I'm not a big fan of hers but do you think they'll try to get Samantha Barks since she already did it in London?

You guys know that a certain recent supporting actress winner did a cabaret show at Joe's Pub where she sang a lot of songs from CABARET, right? And now she's bopping all over creation in her little Liza pixie hairdo. I'm just sayin'.

Her being in the show is the one thing that would make me not want to see it.

I never said she accepted anything, but one of the authors was in the audience at her Joe's Pub appearance and supposedly loved it.

I really can't picture her Sally. I think the only number I could see her doing is maybe this time.

Yes, Anne Hathaway is the most obvious choice given her recent concert and just the striking resemblance she has to Liza. I think she'd be fantastic in the part, actually. However, I'm holding out hope for Nina Arianda or (never gonna happen) Toni Collette, whom I re-watched in VELVET GOLDMINE a couple days ago, I cannot believe she wasn't allowed to play Sally, she'd have been a revelation.
The rumor a few years ago was that Cumming would reprise his Tony-winning performance a la Joel Grey in the 80s revival, is this still the word?

Saw a tweet today from someone who said he was auditioning Kander and Ebb with Kander in the room. Could it be for this? Or too soon?

Probably too soon. May have been for the Vineyard show.

There's also that Kander & Ebb review coming up soon, right? It could have been that too. Now all we need is a KISS OF THE SPIDERWOMAN revival and we'll have plenty of Kander & Ebb going around on Broadway.
Oh, and Donna Murphy must play Fraulein Schneider, it's great she has tried to support new musicals for a while now, but it's time to get her to play a role worthy of her talents after the unfortunate fiasco that was PEOPLE IN THE PICTURE.

Oh God, Donna Murphy is old enough to play that role now? That's scary, but you're right, she'd be brilliant.
