Sutton Foster, the leading lady of TV Land’s new comedy Younger, celebrated her 40th birthday last month — and yes, “celebrate” is the right word to use.
There were no feelings of dread or panic attached to reaching her milestone midlife birthday.
“I’m looking at 40 in the face and I can honestly say I see nothing scary about it,” Foster says. “Compared to when I was younger, I feel like I’m a much more interesting person now.
Darren Star’s new TV Land series Younger made its own star, Sutton Foster, feel like she was “cheating” on Amy Sherman-Palladino.
Foster’s previous TV series was Sherman-Palladino’s beloved but tragically axed Bunheads. Ever since, she and the Gilmore Girls creator had been attempting to find a way to reunite. “I loved Bunheads and our relationship so much. It felt so strange doing something else without her,” Foster tells EW.
“I am so thrilled to work with an actress who truly defines the meaning of triple threat – not only is Sutton an incredible singer; she’s also an incredible actress, and one heck of a dancer. She is so exciting to watch and listen to, and I know that she and the great New York Pops will blow us all away.” -Steven Reineke, music director of The New York Pops
March 13th, 2015, Sutton made her Carnegie Hall Debut with The New York Pops with a sold-out One Night Only Concert, joined by her former co-stars and good friends Megan McGinnis and Joshua Henry.

Review: Sutton Foster at Carnegie Hall
It’s difficult to imagine that Sutton Foster regularly gets a full night’s sleep. The two-time Tony Award winner not only wrapped the filming of an entirely new television series, Younger, which debuts this month on TV Land, but she’s currently accepting applications for her “Cute pet contest” in which she’ll choose her favorite pet, draw it for the winner, and sell prints at a gallery where the proceeds will benefit the New York Humane Society. If that weren’t enough, she sits on the faculty of Ball State University in Indiana and this Friday March 13th , she’ll make her solo Carnegie Hall debut with the NY Pops.
Here, she’ll reprise some of her showstopping numbers from her award-winning performance in Anything Goes as well as songs from last season’s Violet. We caught up with her to discuss dogs, dancing, and her solo debut.
Two-time Tony Award winner Sutton Foster will be headlining her first solo show at Carnegie Hall on March 13. The show, titled One Night Only: Sutton Foster, will feature the New York Pops under the conduction of Steven Reineke and will see Ms. Foster reunite onstage with her Violet co-star Joshua Henry, as well as Megan McGinnis. A celebration of her career so far, the show comes at just the right moment as Ms. Foster is about to debut a new television show called Younger, in which she plays Liza, a single mother forced to pretend she’s 25 in order to find a job. The show, created by Darren Starr, sees the actress at her very best, as she turns in a playful, sexy performance combined with the adorability that has made us theatre fans fall head over heels for her.
Ms. Foster took a moment out of her schedule to talk to us about Younger, her exciting Carnegie Hall show, turning 40 and what’s in store for her next. Needless to say so, she was an absolute delight to speak with.
Sutton Foster is making her solo debut at Carnegie Hall on Friday, March 13, alongside The New York Pops orchestra as part of their 31st season.
The two-time Tony winner has had a long career on Broadway, with 11 Broadway credits to her name, including “Thoroughly Modern Millie,” “Anything Goes” and last season’s “Violet.” Foster will reprise many of her signature songs from those shows, as well as perform her original takes on musical standards.
The trip to the Pops stage comes weeks before Foster makes a regular return to the small screen, in TV Land’s new series “Younger.” […]
We sat down with Foster to get the scoop on both new shows.
Carnegie Hall will soon welcome a Two-time Tony winner to its stage.
On March 13, Broadway’s beloved Sutton Foster will make her solo debut at the historic venue, where she’ll perform alongside her VIOLET co-star Joshua Henry, Megan McGinnis, and the renowned New York Pops, lead by Steven Reineke.
In anticipation of the big night, Foster sat down with BroadwayWorld to offer up new details on the evening, starring in a “revamped” concert version of Andrew Lippa’s musical THE WILD PARTY this summer for Encores!, her “gypsy” life-style, and returning to television in Darren Star’s new TV Land comedy YOUNGER.
