Entertainment Wise is reporting that Emma Stone might make her Broadway debut as Sally Bowles in the next production of Cabaret alongside veteran Alan Cumming, a role previously thought to have been offered to Anne Hathaway.
Stone does have a little musical theatre background and has been known to bust a move (mostly in a comedic context), but I have no idea if she’ll make a good Sally Bowles or not.
It’s very hard to imagine her doing a bad job at anything. At the very least, her performance would be charming.
I’ve always been a bitterbush about not being able to go to Broadway plays, but I’d rather live in Susan Boyle’s armpit than a city as big as New York. So, there’s that.
Stone would of course have to wear crazy black everything (hooker boots, garters, Charlie Chaplin hat, and enough sequins to drown a nest of Texan Polygamists) and dance like Walter White’s best customer.
I’m imagining that Lea Michele just bought a red-haired voodoo doll after hearing this news. Or is that just her character in Glee? I have a lot of trouble separating the two.
