Michelle Williams will make her Broadway debut as sultry nightclub singer Sally Bowles in a planned revival of "Cabaret," according to reports.

The three-time Oscar nominee will star in the Roundabout Theatre Company’s production opposite Alan Cumming, who will reprise his Tony-winning role as the MC.

Performances are reportedly set to start early next year.

Emma Stone ("The Help," "The Amazing Spider-Man") was set to make her Broadway debut in the production, but film commitments forced her to withdraw in May.

An earlier Roundabout revival of "Cabaret" ran on Broadway from 1998 to 2004 and starred Cumming and the late Natasha Richardson, who won a Tony for her role as Sally.

A string of well-known actresses have played the part of Sally on stage and screen, including Judi Dench, Brooke Shields and Liza Minnelli, who won an Oscar in 1973 for her performance in the film adaptation.

Williams, who starred in television's "Dawson's Creek," is also known for her film roles in “Brokeback Mountain,” “Blue Valentine” and "My Week With Marilyn."
