Are you ready to watch Sienna Miller on “Cabaret”? Emma Stone will be leaving the show and Miller will be taking her place.

As Emma Stone is preparing to depart “Cabaret” next month, the producers of the show have released information that Sienna Miller will be taking her role as Sally Bowles. For the final six weeks of the show, Miller will be filling in on the role opposite Alan Cumming as he portrays the role of EmCee.

With Stone’s last day on the show on Feb. 15, 2015, Miller will be starting her role on Feb. 17, 2015 until March 29, 2015. This means that those who expected to watch Stone on her role on the above dates may be in for a disappointment. Considering the fact that the show sold out ever since she filled the role for Michelle Williams last Nov. 11, 2014, this may be something that the producers will have to be prepared for.

Miller, for her part, is no stranger to Broadway. Her last show was “After Miss Julie” in 2009, which was based on “Miss Julie” by August Strindberg. Just like “Cabaret,” Miller’s last play was also a production by Roundabout Theatre Co. Now that she’ll be preparing for the show, 2015 will be a good year for the actress with her upcoming movies “American Sniper” and “Foxcatcher.”

“Cabaret” depicts the life of a singer named Sally and her writer friend Cliff Bradshaw. The show centers around their lives in Berlin’s Kit Kat Klub, wherein EmCee (Alan Cumming) is the host. With the rising threat of the Nazis, the free-spirited nightclub habitues may be in for some drama.

Other performances on the role of Sally Bowles include the ones by Liza Minnelli, who portrayed both the singing and dancing side of the character on the 1972 film adaptation of the show and Natasha Richardson, who acted her way through the show even when she couldn’t sing the songs perfectly. Richardson won a Tony for her portrayal of the role.

Will Sienna Miller do a good job on the role? Will fans be upset now that Emma Stone is out of the production?
