Broadway’s ‘Cabaret’ Hits the Road in 2016

The Broadway revival of “Cabaret” will launch a national tour in January 2016, springing off the attention the show has attracted with starring stints from original topliner Michelle Williams and current star Emma Stone.

Roundabout Theater Company, the nonprofit that produced the Broadway incarnation, will produce the tour. This is second time the troupe has sent this production of “Cabaret,” co-directed by Sam Mendes and Rob Marshall, on the road. The original 1998 staging of the revival, which helped launch the screen careers of Mendes and Marshall, was also produced by Roundabout, and the touring production of that initial revival (produced on the road by another company) ran for several years.

For Roundabout, one of the largest and busiest theater nonprofits in the country, the touring production represents a potentially important stream of revenue for the company, always in need of coin to fuel its wide-ranging activities. The Roundabout has also previously sent out tours of its successful revivals of “Anything Goes” and “Twelve Angry Men.”

The run of “Cabaret” on Broadway is currently set to end March 29. The show then launches its 20-city tour in January 2016 with exact cities, dates and casting still to be set.
