A new leading lady is coming to the Cabaret, old chum. As we previously reported, Emma Stone will indeed make her Broadway debut as Sally Bowles in the musical revival. The show has now officially confirmed that Stone will play a limited engagement November 11 through February 1, 2015, stepping in for Michelle Williams, who completes her run on November 9. The Roundabout Theatre Company production, starring Tony winner Alan Cumming as the Emcee, has also extended its run and will now play through March 29, 2015 at Studio 54.
In addition to Williams and Cumming, the show currently features Danny Burstein, Linda Emond, Bill Heck, Aaron Krohn and Gayle Rankin.
Entertainment Tonight uploaded an amazing flashback video from their archives to celebrate the 20 years (!) anniversary of “Lassie“.
It’s been 20 years since Michelle Williams’ debut on the big screen in the 1994 retelling of Lassie. ET was with the cast on location in rural Virginia, where we caught up with the young starlet in her first movie role. As if we needed this moment to be any more adorable, Michelle plays with a puppy (yes, a puppy!) as she tells us about her portrayal of female lead, April Porter.
“The main boy, his name is Matt. I play pretty much his girlfriend,” she says of her role, “I befriend him when no one else really talks to him, and we become pretty good friends.”
What a cutie, that Michelle. Fortunately for us, this was only the beginning of her rise to stardom. Just four years later, Michelle landed the role of Jen Lindley on the teen television drama, Dawson’s Creek. In 2005, she snagged an Oscar nomination for her performance as Alma in Brokeback Mountain. Three years later, she won a Golden Globe for Best Actress in a Motion Picture Musical or Comedy for her portrayal of Marilyn Monroe in My Week with Marilyn. Her next film, a romantic war drama titled Suite Francaise, is due out late 2014.
