Williams leaves Nov. 9 and Alan Cumming, who plays the chilling Emcee has extended to March 29. Stone is known for her films including "The Amazing Spiderman 2," "Crazy, Stupid, Love" and "Easy A."

Set in 1931 Berlin, "Cabaret" centers on the world of the indulgent Kit Kat Klub as it becomes intertwined with the world outside, which gets more precarious as Nazis take over. The songs by John Kander and Fred Ebb include "Willkommen" and "Tomorrow Belongs to Me."

"Brokeback Mountain" star Williams first stepped into the role this spring, once played by Liza Minnelli, when Stone had to withdraw due to scheduling conflicts.

In addition to Minnelli and Williams, the part of Bowles has been played by Jill Haworth, Gina Gershon, Melina Kanakaredes, Natasha Richardson, Jane Leeves, Lea Thompson, Alyson Reed and Judi Dench, among others.

The current show is a revival of a revival. Also starring Cumming, it ran for more than 2,000 performances from 1998 to 2004 and won the Tony Award in 1998 for best musical revival.

"Cabaret," both the Broadway show and 1972 film starring Minnelli, Joel Grey and Michael York, are based on the 1951 Broadway play "I Am a Camera," which, in turn, was based on Christopher Isherwood's book "Goodbye to Berlin."
