Even smaller in person than she looks on screen, Ms. Williams, 33, does not have a big-movie-star manner. Sitting in her dressing room a couple of weeks ago, on the day after the company had moved from a rehearsal space into the theater, she seemed both tired and a bit overwhelmed. For performances, she eventually settled on a platinum wig that is a sort of exaggerated version of her own blond bob. I get excited about something, and that outweighs everything else. For life, not so good. Williams singing and dancing in character as Marilyn Monroe, and Ms.
Williams, who had researched the character for close to a year, spent a couple of additional weeks on a crash song-and-dance course. Who does? I want more of that feeling. One of the difficulties of playing Sally, she went on, is not just that the part is so complicated — an aspiring British singer, more brazen than she is talented, trying to make a name for herself in a seedy s Berlin nightclub — but also that so many famous actors have already done it: from Julie Harris to Judi Dench.
Williams never saw Natasha Richardson, who won a Tony as Sally in the original Roundabout production, but she caught Jennifer Jason Leigh, who succeeded her with great effectiveness, and also watched the movie version in which Liza Minnelli essentially Lizafies the role, turning Sally into a wide-eyed, American showstopper.
Oh no, there's been an error
In her room, Sally is informed by a staff member that she can head onto the set in a few minutes. She attempts to ask the woman about Edgar, but she leaves and someone immediately locks the door afterwards. Hearing this, Sally runs to it and attempts to call for help and open it, but it's no use. Doowee continues to investigate, but in the process is found by a security guard and is tossed out.
Andy approaches to ask him if he's seen anything, but before he can finish, an announcer begins the show. A boy steps onto the stage and is about to play his piano, only to find it acting strange. Sally gives Doowee a call and explains what happened to her.
They come back to the door and Doowee uses an invention to get Sally out. She runs past them while Andy tries to ask about his hamster again, informing them that she has to get on stage. As she runs behind the set, the staff member insults Sally with her dry sense of humor. Sally tells her that she got locked in the room and asks her if she knew anything about it, but the woman ignores her and makes her sit down. She grabs the microphone stand from a nearby contender, a boy named Devindra and incidentally angers him in doing so. He insists that he was ready for his turn, but the woman wants everyone to perform in their intended order so she tells him to wait and takes off after picking up her clipboard.
There, Sally happens to spot the ripped Calling Card and asks the woman her true opinion about this show. The woman uses a sweet tone, but her words are bitter, revealing her opinions while applying a bunch of makeup on Sally. As Sally scolds her for using too much and choking her, the woman turns her back and makes fun of the performer who messed up with the piano. Devindra also insults him, causing the poor boy to start crying.
In the process though, he happens to shake a key loose from one of their pockets and Sally covers it with one of her feet to avoid being noticed. It's then Sally is called on stage. Doowee and Andy sit down to watch her perform but Andy is pretty worried over Edgar, his hamster, still. Doowee says it can't be helped though because he has to see Sally perform However, they are not needed because Sally is unable to be heard as she sings and is quickly sent off by the displeased audience members.
She storms back to one of the dressing rooms, where Doowee tries to console her. Sally throws down the microphone and claims that someone sabotaged the microphone and she has a good idea who it was: The Researcher! Sally goes over the events leading her to this idea then, saying that after she left the room she locked the door behind her to keep Sally from getting on stage. She also put a bunch of powder on Sally's face, dropped a key, and the calling card she had been hanging on to had a big tear on it.
For further evidence, Sally uses the key she found to show that it works on the door while also pointing out that the woman hates children and probably wants to quit working with them. While Doowee claims Sally might be judging the person causing problems too early, she runs to the back stage area as Devindra is ending his performance.
Sally confronts the Research woman with her evidence, but is surprised when the woman reveals that Sally didn't have her key. Sally also points out her hatred of Children and picks up the ripped card and the scrap paper International Cinephile Society.
