The actress has taken to Broadway since her Cabaret debut

Actress Michelle Williams put herself out to pasture after her exhausting Broadway debut in hit musical Cabaret.

The Brokeback Mountain star graced the stage as Sally Bowles in the 2014 revival, but taking on the all-singing, all-dancing role, made famous by Liza Minnelli, left her feeling run down.

Michelle decided to take some time out from acting after stepping down from the production, and she confesses she indulged in all of her favourite foods - simply because she could.

"That took the stuffing out of me," she recalled to The Associated Press of her Broadway debut. "I put myself out to pasture for a while after Cabaret. I ate a lot, literally, and ran lazily around fields because I was so tired."

However, the mother-of-one is grateful for the experience, which she credits with preparing her to return to the Great White Way for a production of David Harrower's Blackbird.

The 35-year-old is now putting her talents to good use in the dramatic production alongside Jeff Daniels. Blackbird stars Jeff as an older man who is confronted by his one-time lover, played by Michelle, a much younger woman he had had an illegal affair with 15 years prior.
