Michelle Williams will make her Broadway debut next March.
The 32-year-old actress, who has been nominated for an Oscar three times, is set to star as Sally Bowles opposite acclaimed British actor Alan Cumming, 48, in a new production of 'Cabaret'.
Roundabout Theatre Company confirmed on Wednesday (04.09.13) that the 'Brokeback Mountain' star has signed on for a 24-week run and previews will begin on March 21, 2014 at the Kit Kat Klub at Studio 54 on Broadway in New York.
'Skyfall' director Sam Mendes will helm the production for the second time after originally reviving the show in 1993, which also starred Alan.
He said in a statement: ''I'm delighted to be stepping back into the Kit Kat Klub one more time, and to be having the opportunity to re-explore and re-discover this extraordinary musical alongside two equally extraordinary performers.''
The show will begin its official run on April 24.
Former 'Dawson's Creek' star Michelle, whose old co-star Katie Holmes' second stint on Broadway in the 'Dead Accounts' was cut short earlier this year due to poor ticket sales, previously admitted she thought about quitting acting after the sudden death of her ex-boyfriend Heath Ledger until she starred in 'Blue Valentine' in 2010, which rekindled her love of it.
She said: ''Making 'Blue Valentine' restored my desire and enjoyment in acting again, that was the first time I felt like myself again... It helped me feel good again in a way that I hadn't felt like in several years. It rekindled my spirit in many ways.''
