Michelle Williams is a three-time Academy Award nominee. She is also a CYT alum, and will be making her Broadway debut next year as Sally Bowles in “Cabaret.”
The show will run for 24 weeks and opens on April 24th, at Roundabout Theatre Company.
The New York Times reported that Emma Stone was to play the character of Sally, but stated she declined the role due to movie commitments.
“I am so proud of Michelle.” said CYT founder Paul Russell. “I’m looking forward to seeing the show!”
Oscar nominations for Williams include best supporting actress for “Brokeback Mountain,” and best actress for both “Blue Valentine” and “My Week with Marilyn.”
