Michelle Williams feels like a “baby” at ‘Cabaret’ rehearsals.
The 33-year-old actress is to make her Broadway debut in a revival of the production – in which she will play 19-year-old Sally Bowles – and admits she has needed extra preparation time ahead of the production’s opening next month.
She said: “They were generous enough to start me a few months before everyone else. I’ve been taking classes in a studio in Brooklyn and I’m basically being a kid there. I feel like a baby. I get to rehearsal, and I’m like, ‘What do I do?’ “
The ‘My Week with Marilyn’ actress also joked about her “bravery” in taking on the role in the musical, which sees her star opposite Alan Cumming.
Speaking at a TimesTalk discussion with her co-star and director Rob Marshall at New York’s TimesCenter on Monday (24.02.14), she said: “Some people call it bravery, but really, I call it my inability to see a decision through to the end when I say ‘yes.’ “
The production – which will run for 24 weeks – previews from March 21 ahead of the official opening night on April 24.
