Calm down folks, looks like the Anne Hathaway Cabaret story was just a rumor
The Daily Mail has taken down its story regarding Anne Hathaway joining the Broadway show cabaret and now., E! News reports that the rumors are most likely false. Anne’s rep contacted E! to say “it’s not true,” which is a shame, really because after she showed off what a lovley set of pipes she has on her, in Les Miserables, we can’t think of anything better than watching Hathaway getting her Sally Bowles on and doing a turn in Cabaret.
Although the original report has ben taken offline, E! News say that it claimed Anne Hathaway would star in the musical, alongside Alan Cumming, who won a Tony award for his role in the musical back in 1989. However, it looks as though the Anne Hathaway / Liza Minnelli comparisons are going to have to end at the pixie cut because her rep seems keen to put an end to this particular rumor.
A Guardian report suggests that the Daily Mail at least got the Alan Cumming element of the story right; he will be reprising the role of the Emcee, having alluded to it briefly in a recent interview: I’m doing another show on Broadway after The Good Wife season ends. It starts rehearsals the day after my 49th birthday, so I'll be entering my 50th year dancing my tits off and being a sexpot.” Although he didn’t mention the production by name, he did confirm “It's something I did before and we're doing it again.”
