Rumours surrounding Stone's casting had been hot gossip in the theatre community for weeks and was officially confirmed yesterday

Stone was originally set to take the role of Sally Bowles – made famous by Liza Minnelli in the film adaptation – but could not owing to a busy schedule and clashes with the promo tour for The Amazing Spiderman 2.

The Sam Mendes and Rob Marshall directed production has already grossed $15.7 million and also stars Alan Cumming as the Emcee of the Kit Kat Club. Stone will take over Michelle Williams role in Cabaret in November.
