Michelle Williams is great and everyone loves her. She picks great roles, is really gorgeous, seems quite down to earth, yada yada. Well, now she’s got another great role to look forward to: Sally Bowles in the Broadway revival of Cabaret, which is being put on by the Roundabout Theatre Company.
Hilariously, she’s replacing Emma Stone in the role, who had to pull out due to scheduling conflicts. Sally Bowles is the legendary part once held by Liza Minelli, and somehow, I just cannot imagine Emma coming close to filling those shoes, so this sounds like a great change to me!
Also awesome – Alan Cumming will be back to reprise his role as Master of Ceremonies, which will be awesome! Cabaret will open for previews at Studio 54 on March 21, 2014 and then to the public on April 24, 2014. Sam Mendes is directing.
I’ve only ever been to ONE Broadway show despite living in New York for about 12 years now (God, I’m getting old), and that was Wicked, which was great. Still, I wouldn’t mind seeing this! Have any of you ever seen Cabaret? Is it great?
Michelle Williams, not the Destiny’s Child one, is the new face of Louis Vuitton.
Previous faces of the brand include Uma Thurman, Jennifer Lopez, and Gisele Bundchen.
What do we think? I think she looks gorgeous but the ad is so boring and I like how in the top one she’s leaning on the bag as if it’s a chair or something. Like, yeah, we all just casually lean against our handbags.
Here’s a spoof Louis Vuitton ad someone made using a photo of Lohan in court:
Brilliant. I like this so much better than the real campaign.
Shit, I’m tired just with the work bit. Add a kid into the mix and I’d probably be falling asleep over my coffee every morning. Michelle Williams is a successful actress, sure, but she’s also mother to her 7-year-old daughter Matilda (whose father, we all know, is the late Heath Ledger). She loves the work and she loves being a mom, but that doesn’t leave much time for anything else.
Do you have any side projects right now?
No, I wish I had side projects! I’m kind of like a “one thing at a time” girl. I can’t really take on [more]. I wish I was. I wish I was one of those people who’s also taking lots of photos. and going to cooking classes. But I just work and raise the kid. That’s all I can do.
Well, raising the kid is a job in and of itself.
Raising the kid is the work, yeah. And it’s amazing, and it’s the ultimate creative act. That’s my side project and my center project.
Sorta irks me for some weird reason that she refers to Matilda as “the kid” but I can’t really place why and that’s besides the point. I imagine it would be kind of hard to have any side projects when you’ve got a 7-year-old and are a famous actress and all. Like, when do you sit down to start whittling down your Netflix queue? When do you get a chance to run to the Girl Scout cookie cabinet to pick up your supply of Samoas? When do you TAKE A NAP? These are all very important questions. But wahhhh, is this why her love affair with Jason Segel is no more?!
