Broadway's Cabaret has a new Sally Bowles. Following in the footsteps of Michelle Williams and Emma Stone in the musical revival, Sienna Miller will step into the iconic role, starring opposite Alan Cumming for the final six weeks of the production's year-long run.

Miller, currently onscreen in two prime awards contenders, Foxcatcher and American Sniper, will join the cast on Feb. 17, immediately following Stone's departure. She will perform through the production's March 29 closing date.

Co-directed by Sam Mendes and Rob Marshall, and produced by Roundabout Theatre Company, the revival was first presented on Broadway in 1998. It won four Tony Awards, including best musical revival, lead actor for Cumming, lead actress for Natasha Richardson and featured actor for Ron Rifkin. That production ran for just under six years.

The show returned to Studio 54 in March last year, with Cumming reprising his role as the devilish Emcee opposite Williams as Sally, the British nightclub singer doing her best to remain oblivious to the rise of the Nazis in Weimar-era Berlin. Stone took over the role in November, generating the production's strongest sales to date.

The show grossed more than $1 million a week over both Christmas and New Years; its cumulative box office this time around is $30.9 million. 

Miller made her Broadway debut in 2009, starring opposite Jonny Lee Miller in Patrick Marber's After Miss Julie, which was also presented by Roundabout.
