Star of forthcoming Les Misérables movie to give sneak preview of her vocal ability at one-off gig in New York

Two months before Les Misérables opens in cinemas, Anne Hathaway will give a sneak preview of her vocal ability by performing songs from the musical Cabaret, in a one-off benefit concert in New York.

Academy Award nominee Hathaway, who plays Fantine in the forthcoming film, will sing several Sally Bowles numbers from Kander and Ebb's iconic musical, including the title song Cabaret and Maybe This Time. She will be joined by a number of guest stars drawn from stage and screen, for the showcase at Joe's Pub, the Public theatre's cabaret space, on 24 October.

Hathaway already has a relationship with the theatre founded as The Shakespeare Workshop in 1954 by Joseph Papp (hence the cabaret venue's name). In 2009, she played Viola in a critically acclaimed production of Twelfth Night at Shakespeare in the Park, »
