Gabriela Geselowitz: He'd make a good Cliff Gaspar Marino: I think it's Cliff in Cabaret, but I would like to see him in The Bodyguard as well. It's just great to see him back on Broadway. Alec Carroll: I'd love to see him do Cliff in Cabaret! mlapierre85: Cliff in Cabaret. He and Williams would make a great pair!
The Kander and Ebb classic Cabaret is heading back to Broadway beginning March 21, 2014, at Studio 54, with Academy Award nominee Michelle Williams as Sally Bowles and Tony Award winner Alan Cumming as the Emcee. Sam Mendes and Rob Marshall will recreate their Tony-winning 1998 staging for the Broadway return of Cabaret. Casting for the role of Cliff, who sang "Why Should I Wake Up?" in the original (cut for the Mendes revival), has not been announced. If Wilson does return to the stage as Cliff, audiences will only get a snippet of his voice during the truncated version of "Perfectly Marvelous" with Sally.
