In what is without question the most exciting, and surprising, casting news we have heard in quite some time, The New York Times has just reported that Michelle Williams (she of the three Oscar nominations, not the child of Destiny) will be making her Broadway debut this season playing Sally Bowles in the highly anticipated revival of Cabaret opposite Alan Cumming, again playing the M.C., a role for which he won the Tony in 1998.

Looks like those Anne Hathaway rumors were just that.

The announcement has yet to be made officially, but the Times spoke with two producers who confirmed the news.

Sam Mendes will be staging the revival with Rob Marshall serving as co-director and choreographer. The pair also worked with Cumming on the 1998 revival.

So something tells us Williams, who just wrapped filming on next year’s Suite Francaise, should start making some room for a Tony on her shelf. She is going to make a Sally even Liza would be proud of.
