The Washington Post | Sutton Foster, dancing on the edge

Photo by Monique CarboniNEW YORK — It’s a challenge, pinpointing exactly where Sutton Foster begins and Charity Hope Valentine ends.

“He said that the woman playing Millie has left the show, and the role of Millie is yours if you want it,” Foster recalled. “I was on the other line with the boyfriend at the time, and I was, like, ‘What?’ And, like, clicked off with Michael Mayer, went back to the boyfriend, ‘I have to call you back!’”
