Willkommen to “Cabaret,” Emma Stone. Producers of the John Kander-Fred Ebb musical revival at Studio 54 confirmed that “The Amazing Spider-Man” actress will replace Michelle Williams in the role of Sally Bowles.

Williams leaves the Roundabout Theatre company production on Nov. 9. Stone will play the the tatty Berlin club singer from Nov. 11 to Feb. 1.

Alan Cumming will continue in his role of the creepy Emcee through March 29, the current closing date.
Williams disappointed some theatergoers because her wispy performance couldn't match Alan Cumming’s juggernaut.

Stone was expected to debut in “Cabaret” earlier this year but dropped out due to scheduling conflicts.

The Daily News described Williams as “wispy” and “not memorable” — a weak link compared to Cumming’s powerhouse performance.
