Michelle Williams Transforms Into Sally Bowles for Stunning 'Vogue' Feature!

Michelle Williams looks absolutely stunning while posing as the character Sally Bowles from Broadway’s Cabaret in this new photo from Vogue‘s April 2014 issue.

Here is what the 33-year-old Oscar-nominated actress, who is making her Broadway debut in the musical revival, had to share with the mag:

On reconnecting with her inner showgirl: “Singing and dancing take you out of your headā€”you’re too busy doing too many other things to be thinking, How am I doing? You’re just doing. It’s like meditation. When Cabaret came along, with these gorgeous, gorgeous, gorgeous songsā€”they’re so simple, but they tap into something deep and emotionalā€”I knew that I wanted to follow that thing I tasted a few years ago. I haven’t been confronted with the nerves yet, so now the singing is just pure joy. Honestly, it feels like being a kid. Now let’s see if I can be a kid onstage eight times a week.”

On playing the role reinvented by the late Natasha Richardson: “A friend told me that when Natasha was debating whether or not to do this role, her mother said, ‘Darling, when they ask you to play Sally Bowles, you play Sally Bowles.’ So I pretended that Vanessa Redgrave was my mother and followed her adviceā€”who knows when the chance will come around again?”
