Christopher Isherwood’s creation Sally Bowles has passed through as many incarnations as a Hindu goddess, each time retaining her essential attributes—green nails, ratty furs, and those stomach-turning prairie oysters. First there was Jean Ross, the British novelist’s real-life Berlin roommate and literary inspiration. Out of her the writer confected Sally, the heroine of Goodbye to Berlin (1939), a flamboyant vixen with a face “powdered dead white.” In John Van Druten’s 1951 play, I Am a Camera, the quirky chanteuse was channeled by Julie Harris, whom Isherwood decreed “more essentially Sally Bowles than the Sally of my book.” Next, with the release of the 1972 movie musical Cabaret, Liza Minnelli took temporary possession of Sally’s flighty soul.
But Sally’s mercurial spirit has since migrated to Molly Ringwald, Brooke Shields, Michelle Williams, and now, starting November 11 at the Roundabout Theatre’s Studio 54, in New York, Emma Stone. “I’ve wanted to play Sally Bowles since I was 10, when I saw Natasha Richardson in Cabaret,” says the 26-year-old Broadway newcomer, who earned a 2010 Golden Globe nomination for Easy A. “Rob Marshall”—co-director, with Sam Mendes, of the current production—“said to me that Sally is like Hamlet for women.”
Cabaret’s ongoing Emcee, Alan Cumming (for whom Emma Stone is Sally No. 6), explains, “It’s unusual for young actresses to get such completeness in a role. Sally is vulnerable, tragic, funny, unlikable, heartbreaking. And then she gets whacked across the face with an epiphany.” Stone adds, “I don’t think I’ve ever been so truly obsessed with a character or a story. I can’t believe this is actually happening!”
Emma Stone’s star will soon shine on Broadway when she debuts in “Cabaret,” but the actress’s latest projects have been darker than her previous roles in “The Amazing Spider-Man,” “Easy A” and, earlier this year, “Magic in the Moonlight.”
In the film “Birdman,” directed by Alejandro G. Iñárritu, she plays Sam, a young woman fresh out of rehab and furious at her father, Riggan Thomson (Michael Keaton). Sam agrees to be his assistant as he obsesses over staging his Broadway adaptation of a Raymond Carver story, but then feels neglected and relegated to menial tasks like getting his coffee.
Ms. Stone, 25 years old, filmed several of her “Birdman” scenes on the rooftop of Broadway’s St. James Theatre on 44th Street, just 10 blocks from where she will star in her own show, “Cabaret” at Studio 54, starting Nov. 11.
In “Cabaret,” she is set to take over the role of Sally Bowles, the despairing singer at the Kit Kat Klub in 1931 Berlin. Directed by Rob Marshall and Sam Mendes, this Roundabout Theatre Company revival stars Alan Cumming as the Emcee and, currently, Michelle Williams as Sally.
