Thanks to Emma Stone's success in Cabaret, The Roundabout Theater has extended her stay.

It’s no surprise that Stone is staying on in her role as the iconic Fraulein Sally Bowles, for which she’s received rave reviews since replacing Michelle Williams back in November. Stone’s name was originally attached to the production while it was in development, but she had to bow out due to scheduling conflicts. This is Stone’s Broadway debut, but we might be seeing more of her onstage this year, as well as her roles in upcoming projects by Woody Allen and Cameron Crowe.

George Lucas Evan Rachel Wood Kristin Chenoweth Alan Cumming

Set to captivate audiences of all ages, 'Strange Magic' is the enchanting animated comedy from George Lucas, who may have taken a step back from the big budget adventure blockbusters of 'Indiana Jones' and 'Star Wars', but certainly still has a few tricks up his sleeve.

Strange Magic logo

With a hilarious cast featuring Evan Rachel Wood, Kristin Chenoweth and Alan Cumming, 'Strange Magic' sees a fairytale land divided into the magical and the mysterious, with the twain never meeting until one fateful day. Suddenly, there seems to be an impending all out war, with both cultures disturbed by the sight of each other and unwilling to accept each other's differences (doesn't sound like such a fantasy land after all, right?).

Shia LaBeouf Alan Cumming

Transformers star Shia LaBeouf has pleaded guilty to charges of disorderly conduct filed earlier this year when he interrupted a theatre performance and then resisted removal from the venue. Under the terms of the plea he will avoid jail time or probation, but will have to attend all court appointments and complete a three month treatment programme.

According to the BBC, LaBeouf was arrested after "smoking, shouting at actors and using abusive language" whilst attempts were made to remove him from the theatre audience. The incident occurred during a performance of hit musical Cabaret in New York, starring Michelle Williams and Alan Cumming. However Scott Gorenstein, the rep for Liza Minnelli, made light of the siutation when he sent a DVD of the 1972 film adaptation of the musical to LaBeouf, telling Us Weekly "I figured he may want to find out how it ends."
