Roundabout Theater Company is planning a 2014 revival of 'Cabaret.'

The Roundabout Theater Company is planning a new production of Cabaret in early 2014, according to The New York TimesMacbeth star Alan Cumming is eyeing a return to the role of the Emcee, which won him the 1998 Tony Award for Best Actor in a Musical. The classic John Kander-Fred Ebb musical would be produced by the Roundabout Theater Company and play at Studio 54. A previous report from the U.K.’s Daily Mail alleged that Anne Hathaway would star as Sally Bowles, but a rep for the Oscar-winning actress confirmed to Broadway.com that Hathaway is not involved. 

Cumming led the most recent revival of Cabaret in 1998 opposite Natasha Richardson and Ron Rifkin (both of whom also won Tonys for the production). Produced by the Roundabout, the show ran for almost six years on Broadway.

Cumming, who recently earned two Broadway.com Audience Choice Award nominations for Macbeth, has also appeared on Broadway in The Threepenny Opera and Design for Living. His film and TV resume includes The Good Wife, X2, Spy Kids, Web Therapy, Burlesque, Spice World, Josie and the Pussycats, Annie and The Anniversary Party.

A spokesperson for the Roundabout declined to comment on the revival.
