"Meryl Streep came last week and my voice was gone, and I freaked out about it. But she was so sweet, she was like, 'It's the cocaine!", because my character does cocaine - I don't do cocaine.

Actress Emma Stone loves having stars in the audience during her run as Sally Bowles in Broadway's Cabaret.
