Three-time Oscar nominee Michelle Williams has announced that she will extend her Broadway-debut run as Sally Bowles in Roundabout Theatre Company's remounted revival production of Cabaret. The actress will remain with the show through November 9, opposite Tony Award winner Alan Cumming, who will perform his duties as the musical's Emcee through January 4, 2015, the production's currently scheduled closing date.

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.

Featuring a book by Joe Masteroff and a score by John Kander and Fred Ebb, Cabaret is based on the stories of Christopher Isherwood and John Van Druten's drama I Am a Camera. The current staging, codirected by Sam Mendes and Rob Marshall, 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 who have re-created their work for the current production.
