NEW YORK, N.Y. - Sienna Miller will step up to play the fishnet-and-bowler hat wearing chanteuse Sally Bowles on Broadway.

Roundabout Theatre Company said Wednesday that Miller will take over from Emma Stone on Feb. 17 and play the final six weeks of the show's run through March 29. Michelle Williams last year made her Broadway debut in the role, handing it to Stone on Nov. 11.

The current revival of the revival that ran from 1998-2004 also stars Alan Cumming as Emcee, Linda Emond and Danny Burstein. It's directed by Sam Mendes and co-directed and choreographed by Rob Marshall.

Miller, who is currently co-starring in Clint Eastwood's "American Sniper," made her Broadway bow in Patrick Marber's "After Miss Julie" and starred in the 2011 West End revival of Terence Rattigan's "Flare Path."

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

"Cabaret," both the Broadway show and 1972 film starring Liza 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."
