Tonight's performance of Roundabout Theatre Company's new Broadway revival of Kander and Ebb's Cabaret, which began previews on March 21, has been canceled. Tony Award winner Alan Cumming is unwell and unable to perform, and his understudy has not yet been rehearsed, the production explained. Performances are expected to resume tomorrow.

Subscribers will receive a call to reschedule their tickets, and single ticket holders may exchange their tickets from the original point of purchase.

Directed by Sam Mendes and codirected and choreographed by Rob Marshall, this revival of Cabaret is a remounting of Roundabout's long-running 1998 production, for which Cumming won a Tony Award. The production, which is mounted at Studio 54, reunites that Tony-winning production's original design team, consisting of Robert Brill (set and club design), William Ivey Long (costume design), Peggy Eisenhauer and Mike Baldassari (lighting design), and Brian Ronan (sound design), will re-create their work. Patrick Vacariello serves as musical director. Opening night is set for April 24.

In addition to Cumming, the cast features Academy Award nominee Michelle Williams as Sally Bowles, and Tony nominees Linda Emond as Fraulein Schneider and Danny Burstein as Herr Shultz, Bill Heck as Clifford Bradshaw, and Gayle Rankin as Fraulein Kost. The ensemble of Kit Kat Klub boys and girls will include 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.
