Barely sneaking in under the Tony Award nomination deadline this season is a dear old friend to Broadway, the decadent "Cabaret".Not a revival so much as a revival of a revival, this "Cabaret" -- again produced by the Roundabout Theatre Company -- opened Thursday night, with only hours to spare before its eligibility expired. If it looks a lot like the version that ran from 1998-2004, that's understandable: Alan Cumming is back in his Tony Award-winning role as Emcee and director Sam Mendes and co-director and choreographer Rob Marshall are again pulling the strings on this show about life in pre-World War II Berlin. It's a role made famous in the 1972 film version by Liza Minnelli and in the last Broadway revival by Natasha Richardson.Williams starts out a little tentatively but soon roars into the role and her version of the title song has a wrenching, dead-eyed quality that hauntingly undercuts its light lyrics.
