All due respect to our excellent colleague, Adam Feldman, but I wasn't totally thrilled by Michelle Williams's hysterical kewpie doll act in the Roundabout Theatre Company's re-revival of Cabaret. Sure, Sam Mendes's aggressively seedy and in-yer-face staging still works smashingly, but I longed for a more memorable Sally Bowles. Perhaps Emma Stone, stepping into the role November 11, will be the one. She's currently riding the Birdman wave, also on my must-see list. This promotional shot, snapped by Richard Phibbs, has me sitting up and taking notice. Wilkommen, Emma.
