"The Amazing-Spiderman" actress is being lined up for her Broadway debut in a production of ‘Cabaret’
Stone was debating making her first appearance on Broadway last year, but decided to opt out of doing a show due to scheduling conflicts. The flow of the negotiations to lure her to the Kit Kat Klub appear to be moving along smoothly at this time.
Last week a representative told JustJared.com, “I can confirm that Emma Stone is in negotiations to make her Broadway debut as ‘Sally Bowles’ in Cabaret on Broadway at Roundabout Theatre Company.”
Set in 1931 Berlin, "Cabaret" centers on the world of the indulgent Kit Kat Klub as it becomes intertwined with the world outside, which gets more precarious as Nazis take over. The songs by John Kander and Fred Ebb include "Willkommen" and "Tomorrow Belongs to Me."
If the talks go through, Stone will be replacing Michelle Williams who has extended her run until November 9 with revival original Alan Cummings. However, unless the run is extended, Stone will only be in for a two-month run since the show is scheduled to close on January 4, 2015.
"The Amazing Spider-Man" actress will appear with Michael Keaton in Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu’s upcoming film, "Birdman," the story of a washed-up superhero actor who plots to make his comeback in a Broadway play. "Birdman" is scheduled for release on October 17.
Stone also appears alongside Colin Firth in Woody Allen’s new romantic comedy "Magic in the Moonlight," which opened last Friday. But, despite the appearance of two strong actors, the reviews labeled this film as lukewarm at best.
Stone has sang before as evidenced when she competed for the role of Laurie Partridge in the 2004 reality show, "In Search of the New Partridge Family."
