Emma Stone has started her Broadway career on the right foot and has decided to add another two weeks to her run as Sally Bowles in Cabaret.
The Birdman actress originally agreed to perform through Feb. 1, but the Roundabout Theatre announced over the weekend that Stone will stay on through Feb. 15. Alan Cumming, who plays the Emcee, has also been confirmed to continue through March 29, the production’s final performance at Studio 54.
Stone replaced Michelle Williams, who played Sally Bowles until November. The movie star earned rave reviews, including a glowing one from the New York Times.
The famous musical, which features songs by John Kander and Fred Ebb, will also be heading out on tour in January 2016, Entertainment Weekly reported in December.
Stone will not be performing on Saturday, likely because she has to be in Los Angeles for the Golden Globes on Sunday. She’s up for Best Supporting Actress in Birdman. Roundabout also said that there will not be a performance on Sunday.
