Emma Stone In Talks to Replace Michelle Williams in Broadway ‘Cabaret’

Maybe this time: Emma Stone, who had almost toplined the Broadway revival of “Cabaret” that currently stars Michelle Williams, might get a stint in the production after all, with the actress in negotiations to step into the musical once Williams exits.

Reps for the production confirmed Stone is in talks for the part, after news broke in the New York Times.

Williams recently extended her engagement in the musical through Nov. 9. Stone would take over from Williams after that.

Stone had been one of the original contenders for the role — that of nightclub performer Sally Bowles — in the Roundabout Theater Company revival that opened in the spring. That casting didn’t happen, however, due to scheduling conflicts.

The Broadway revival of “Cabaret” is currently scheduled to run through Jan. 4 at Studio 54, although an extension seems a strong possibility.
