Danny Burstein and Linda Emond have joined the cast of Roundabout's 'Cabaret' in 2014.

Cabaret has found its rightful Herr. Four-time Tony nominee Danny Burstein and two-time nominee Linda Emond have joined the cast of Roundabout Theatre Company’s forthcoming revival of Cabaret as Herr Schultz and Fraulein Schneider, respectively. The duo will star alongside previously announced headliners Alan Cumming (as the Emcee) and Michelle Williams (as Sally Bowles) in the revival, which will begin performances at Studio 54 on March 21, 2014, and open on April 24.

Written by John Kander, Fred Ebb and Joe Masteroff, Cabaret is set in a seedy nightclub in 1930s Berlin where a young English cabaret performer (Williams) encounters an American writer, under the watchful eye of a zealous Master of Ceremonies (Cumming). Burstein will play Schultz, an optimistic Jewish store owner who romances pragmatic landlady Fraulein Schneider (Emond). Full casting will be announced shortly.

The production is a reprise mounting of the 1998 Tony-winning production of Cabaret, which boasted direction by Sam Mendes and co-direction/choreography by Rob Marshall. Both will recreate their Tony-nominated vision for the show, alongside the original design team, which includes set and club design by Robert Brill, costume design by William Ivey Long, lighting by Peggy Eisenhauer and Mike Baldassari, and sound design by Brian Ronan.

Burstein, who will star in The Snow Geese this fall on Broadway, recently starred in Roundabout’s Talley’s Folly opposite Sarah Paulson. The stage vet’s other Broadway credits include Golden Boy, Follies, South Pacific, The Drowsy Chaperone, Company and Titanic. Emond last appeared at the Roundabout as Abigail Adams in 1776; more recently, she starred opposite Philip Seymour Hoffman in Mike Nichols’ production of Death of a Salesman, earning a Tony Award nomination for her role as Linda Loman.
