Alan Cumming and Cabaret Cast to Get Revealing Calendar

Alan Cumming and Cabaret Cast to Get Revealing Calendar

An official calendar featuring Alan Cumming and other scantily clad cast members from the current Broadway revival of Cabaret will benefit Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS, Playbill reports.

Cast members Kristin Olness and Kristie Dale Sanders are creative producers of the Kit Kat Calendar 2015. Sharing an exclusive peek at photographer Rob Klein's images, Sanders, the calendar's graphic designer, jokes that "people are going to have to buy it to see the full photo of Alan."

The 49-year-old Good Wife star reprises his Tony-winning role as the flamboyantly omnisexual Emcee in the Roundabout Theatre Company revival, which opened April 24 and has extended through March 29 at Broadway's Studio 54.

Cumming famously played the Emcee in the Tony-winning 1998 production of the classic Kander and Ebb musical, which ultimately ran for six years. Sam Mendes and Rob Marshall, both Tony-nominated for their work 15 years ago, have re-created their direction and choreography for the new revival. The original design team has also returned to transform the theater into a pre-World War II Berlin nightclub.

Oscar nominee Michelle Williams makes her Broadway debut as damaged cabaret singer Sally Bowles through November 9. Golden Globe nominee Emma Stone, also making her Broadway debut, will take over the role November 11 through February 1. Both Williams and Stone will appear in the Kit Kat Calendar.
