CABARET is one of the most successful, widely-celebrated shows to ever hit the stage. Based on the play I Am A Camera by John Van Druten which took its inspiration from Christopher Isherwoods seminal novel Goodbye To Berlin, the musical first debuted at the West End in 1968.
After news of another extension to its run last year, we now have some casting news, with actress and model Cara Delevingne set to take on the role of Sally Bowles next month. This comes alongside the announcement that the role of the Emcee will be played by the Olivier-Award-winning actor Luke Treadaway.
The part of Sally Bowles will mark Cara Delevingne’s first stage role, and she will take over from Rebecca Lucy Taylor (otherwise known as Self Esteem) from March 11. Luke Treadaway will replace Jake Shears in the role of the Emcee.
Recent roles for Cara Delevingne have included the hit show Only Murders In The Building and the documentary she presents named Planet Sex With Cara Delevingne. She has also played the role of June Moone in Suicide Squad, and has appeared on Fiona Apple’s stunning Fetch The Bolt Cutters (2020) record.
Speaking on her new role, Cara Delevingne said: “There are no words to explain the excitement I have to return home to make my stage debut in such an iconic role. I am so inspired by the brilliant actors who have played Sally in past productions around the world and in this one in the West End. I cannot wait to be a part of this brilliant cast and production.”
‘Cabaret’ at London’s Kit Kat Club is running up until February 2025, and you can book tickets here. Cara Delevingne and Luke Treadaway will be starting as Sally Bowles and the Emcee from March 11, 2024.
