Egan, who was set to end her current stint Oct. 26, has signed on to stay with the show to its close date of Jan. 4, 2004.

Understudy Katrina Yaukey will play the role of Sally Bowles Oct. 27-Nov. 2 and intermittently through the run's end as Egan performs previously scheduled concert engagements.

A Tony Award nominee for her turn in Beauty and the Beast, Egan's other credits include a prior stint as Sally Bowles in Cabaret as well as Triumph of Love, Putting It Together and State Fair. She also provided the voice of Megara for the Disney film "Hercules."

She plays opposite the current cast — who will stay with the run through Jan. 4, 2004 — of Adam Pascal (as the Emcee), Tony Roberts (as Herr Schultz) and Blair Brown (as Fraulein Schneider) with Rick Holmes (as Clifford Bradshaw) and Liz McConahay (as Fraulein Kost). Martin Moran will assume the role of Ernst Ludwig, Oct. 27.

The long-running musical recently announced the new closing date following a boost in ticket sales when its "final weeks" were advertised. Roundabout recently purchased Cabaret's current home Studio 54 and has slated a revival of the Stephen Sondheim and John Weidman musical Assassins to inaugurate the newly-acquired space as the non-profit's new Broadway musical venue in March of 2004.

The musical directed by Sam Mendes with Rob Marshall, featuring the music of Kander, the lyrics of Ebb and book by Joe Masteroff, opened on Broadway March 19, 1998. It won four Tony Awards that year including Best Revival of a Musical.
