An Emotional Emma Stone Wows the Crowd in ‘Cabaret’ Debut
Stone made her debut just days after her 26th birthday (November 6, 2014).
The actress got a little teary eyed at during the curtain call after receiving a standing ovation, and seemed thrilled that opening night was over and grateful for the roll of a lifetime.
Stone received mostly positive reviews. The Guardian had this to say:
When it come to her big numbers she delivers. Maybe This Time locates the vulnerability inside the camp, and Stone gives a bravura performance of the title song, at once defiant, pathetic and heroic. In her final moments onstage, finally the characterization gels and we understand why Sally can never leave the Kit Kat Klub. As she and the rest of the cast are drawn into the Nazi death machine at the musical’s devastating conclusion, we’ve been taken from titillating naughtiness to a vision of true evil. Despite her inexperience on stage, Stone has done as much as anyone in the cast to make the audience experience that transition, in a performance that was anything but cabaret.
