Roundabout Theatre Company will present the Broadway revival of Sam Mendes and Rob Marshall's Tony-winning production of Cabaret in 2014. In the production Alan Cumming will reprise his Tony Award-winning performance opposite Oscar nominee Michelle Williams, who will make her Broadway debut. In the 1998 production a handful of leading ladies were seen as Sally Bowles, such as Katie Finneran, Molly Ringwald, Brooke Shields, Gina Gerson and original star Natasha Richardson, among others. Potter could join the ranks following Williams' turn in the anticipated revival.
Holed up in a seedy motel on the edge of the Mojave Desert, two former lovers unpack the deep secrets and dark desires of their tangled relationship, passionately tearing each other apart. Led by director Daniel Aukin (Back Back Back at MTC, 4,000 Miles), Tony winner Nina Arianda (Venus in Fur at MTC, Born Yesterday) and Sam Rockwell (A Behanding in Spokane, The Way Way Back) bring an explosive intensity to Sam Shepard’s (Buried Child, True West) landmark myth of the new Wild West.
