Award-winning Broadway star Sutton Foster comes to the Civic Center on Saturday evening to present a concert with the Des Moines Symphony but she will also spend some time giving back.
Along with her concert, Foster will put on a master class at the Temple Theater Friday afternoon for students and young professionals in Des Moines metro area. Participants sent in vocal portfolio submissions to be considered and coached by Foster.
One of the most prominent themes throught “Younger” is the differences between Millenials and Gen X, which has helped to broaden the show’s audience to those of all ages. But it’s also posed interesting challenges to the cast and writers.
At TheWrap’s screening of the final two episodes of “Younger” Season 2 on Monday, creator Darren Star, writer Dottie Zicklin and stars Sutton Foster and Hilary Duff explained how they often have to learn from each other, because the generational divide can be so great.

Sutton Foster is taking a break from Tootsie-ing herself on Younger to sing and dance on the return of Gilmore Girls. In the Netflix revival, the two-time Tony winner, who’s also a self-proclaimed diehard fan of the series, will play a struggling actress thrown into the small-town spotlight as she headlines a musical based on the fictional hamlet of Stars Hollow. Joining her for the show-within-a-show are two additional Broadway faves: fellow Tony winner and ex-husband Christian Borle and Kerry Butler. Foster briefly caught up with Broadway.com to gush about the Palladinos, shooting with Lorelai herself and getting professional with Borle. Read more
We knew that self-proclaimed Gilmore Girls “super fan” Sutton Foster had a part in the Netflix revival, but initially she simply said that her experience was “beyond.” (Like, of course.) “I’m a super fan from the couch suddenly invited to the set,” Foster told Vulture at Variety’s Power of Women Luncheon, presented by Lifetime, on Friday. “It was definitely surreal.” As for her character, she told us that she’s just a gal trying to make the big time. “I can tell you that her best gig that she’s gotten so far in life is the lead in the Stars Hollow musical,” said Foster. “So, she’s a struggling actress.” (Is there any other kind?)
We saw some seriously gorgeous outfits on the red carpet of Variety’s Power Of Women NY Luncheon on April 8. So many powerful and inspiring women were there and they looked fabulous. From Sutton Foster, 41, to Lupita Nyong’o, 33, the ladies were dressed to impress.
(…) We were so happy to see Sutton at the event, we love her! She looked so pretty in her red dress and we cannot believe how toned her body is! She opted for a skin-tight, sleeveless red Gauri & Nainika midi dress with a ruffled bodice. Sutton topped her look off with simple black ankle-strap sandals.
Show tunes and Stars Hollow? Um, yes, please.
