Woody Allen’s new muse, Emma Stone, may make her first appearance on Broadway as Sally Bowles in the Roundabout Theater Company’s production of “Cabaret’’. The New York Times reports that the “The Amazing Spider-Man’’ star is “in talks’’ to take over the lead role for actress Michelle Williams, who will end her run with the production Nov. 9.

A rep for Stone, who has been in Newport this summer filming her second Woody Allen project, has not yet confirmed the news, but the Times reports that a show spokesperson confirmed the negotiations.

The “Magic in the Moonlight’’ actress was previously tied to the revival production of “Cabaret’’ in 2013, but had to drop out due to scheduling conflicts. Should the logistics shake out, EW.com says Stone would start her Broadway run alongside co-star Alan Cumming on November 11.


Williams announced that she was extending her role as the frisky, fearless Cabaret performer in late July despite less than stellar reviews of her performance.
