Emma Stone reflects on playing Cabaret's Sally on Broadway: "The hardest thing I've ever done"

Madhushree

Recently, in an interview, while promoting her film Poor Things, Emma Stone got candid about her Broadway tenure as Solly Bowles in the revival of Cabaret in 2014, describing it as the most challenging role of her career. Stone is an award-winning actress known for her work in La La Land

When asked about a potential return to Broadway, Stone answered: "Broadway was the hardest thing I've ever done. Doing Cabaret. It really is the hardest thing. I thought it would've been easier, you know, just three hours a day, you're not on set, you go home. But you have to live like a monk, your voice is always gone (or at least mine is, because it's broken), and it was so frickin' hard."

Stone portrayed Sally Bowles in Cabaret alongside Alan Cumming in Sam Mendes' revival of the Kander and Ebb show. However, Stone acknowledged the experience's positive influence on her perspective on acting: "I will say, it made me fall in love with acting in a different way. Plus, I did 'La La Land' right after that, so I've looked at acting differently since I did it."

Cabaret returns to Broadway this spring, with the West End revival transferring to New York. Eddie Redmayne and Gayle Rankin will lead the Broadway production while the show continues its successful run in the West End.
