"Easy A" star eyed for Sally Bowles
Willkommen to Broadway, Emma Stone?
The "Easy A" and "Amazing Spider-Man" star is in talks to star in a revival of "Cabaret," according to an individual with knowledge of her plans. No deal has been set, but if she takes the role, it would mark her Great White Way debut.
Stone would play Sally Bowles, the American underground club singer whose life and checkered love affairs form the spine of the Weimer Republic-set musical. The character has previously been portrayed — to awards and acclaim — by actresses including Judi Dench, Natasha Richardson and Liza Minnelli.
The Roundabout Theatre is planning the revival at Studio 54, composer John Kander told to the New York Times on Wednesday. The Times reported that Alan Cumming will reprise his Tony-winning role as the Emcee in the production.
Stone's representatives and a representative for the Roundabout declined to comment.
Details have yet to be finalized, but the production will be mounted in 2014, according to the Times.
Earlier reports had indicated that Anne Hathaway was being approached for the role, but her publicist denied that to the Times.
Stone has been busy of late, lining up projects with the likes of Cameron Crowe and Woody Allen. She recently appeared in "Gangster Squad" and provided voice work for the hit animated film "The Croods." Next summer she will reprise her role as Gwen Stacy in "The Amazing Spider-Man 2."
