Roundabout Theatre Company's remounting of John Kander, Fred Ebb, and Joe Masteroff's musical Cabaret, directed by Sam Mendes and Rob Marshall, has extended its Broadway run through January 4, 2015. Opening tonight at Studio 54, the production was originally scheduled to close on August 31.

Cabaret stars Alan Cumming, who reprises his Tony-winning performance as the Emcee, and Oscar nominee Michelle Williams in her Broadway debut as Sally Bowles. The show also features Tony nominees Linda Emond and Danny Burstein as Fraulein Schneider and Herr Schultz, with Bill Heck as Clifford Bradshaw, Gayle Rankin as Fraulein Kost, and Aaron Krohn as Ernst Ludwig. The Kit Kat Klub boys and girls are Will Carlyon, Kaleigh Cronin, Caleb Damschroder, Benjamin Eakeley, Andrea Goss, Leeds Hill, Kristin Olness, Kelly Paredes, Jessica Pariseau, Dylan Paul, Jane Pfitsch, Evan Siegel, and Stacey Sipowicz.

Cumming will continue with the production through January 4, a production spokesperson has confirmed, and Williams will appear in the musical through the fall. The date of her final performance has not yet been determined.

The staging reunites the 1998 Tony-winning production's original design team: Robert Brill (set and club design), William Ivey Long (costume design), Peggy Eisenhauer and Mike Baldassari (lighting design), and Brian Ronan (sound design), all of whom have re-created their work for the current production. Patrick Vaccariello serves as musical director. Previews began on March 21.
