Playbill | How Sutton Foster Embodies the American Spirit

Photo by Laura Marie DuncanSutton Foster and Rhiannon Giddens, two of American song’s most restlessly inquisitive artists—albeit singing in entirely different realms—will each headline concerts at Alice Tully Hall for Lincoln Center’s American Songbook on April 14 and May 13, respectively. Neither should be missed.
Both artists have been applauded by Songbook audiences for many years. Foster, a beloved two-time Tony winner on Broadway, made her solo New York concert debut with American Songbook at the intimate Stanley H. Kaplan Penthouse in 2004, then returned in 2009 for a grand evening in The Appel Room (then called The Allen Room) high atop the Jazz at Lincoln Center complex overlooking Columbus Circle.

Democrat & Chronicle | Broadway star Sutton Foster makes Rochester debut with RPO

Democrat&ChronicleWhen you remind Sutton Foster that she’s a triple-threat talent — a star who has acted, danced and sung her way from Broadway to television to Netflix — she sounds a little taken aback.
“I don’t think of myself as a triple-threat talent,” she says. “I think of myself as someone who’s trying to figure stuff out.”
Foster will be making her Rochester debut with the Rochester Philharmonic Orchestra in two Pops concerts conducted by Jeff Tyzik on Feb. 10 and 11. She’s the most recent in a line of major Broadway leading ladies (including Bernadette Peters, Audra McDonald and Kristin Chenoweth) to play in Rochester.

Boston Herald | Sutton Foster looks beyond Pops concerts 
to art, TV Land’s ‘Younger’ and more

Photo by Laura Marie DuncanSutton Foster’s fans probably won’t be surprised to hear that one of her favorite songs in her live show is John Denver’s “Sunshine on My Shoulders.” While it’s not exactly the kind of Broadway number she’s known for, the tune’s upbeat sentiments make it a perfect fit for her personality.
“I’m not 100 percent puppy dogs and rainbows, but, in general, I try to maintain that kind of outlook,” she said by phone from New York. “Concert work is awesome, not to be hiding behind any character or costume and just saying, ‘Hey, this is who I am.’ I heard a lot of John Denver from my parents growing up, and something about his voice just evokes nature and I’m very drawn to that. We lost my mother a couple of years ago, and she really loved it, too, so it’s such a gift that I get to sing it for her every night. So that’s the kind of song that captures me in the clearest light.”

Cambridge Wicked Local | Q&A with Sutton Foster: ‘Younger’ actress joins the Boston Pops May 26-27

Photo by Laura Marie DuncanBefore she takes on the role of taxi dancer Charity Hope Valentine, however, Foster will make her Boston Pops debut May 26 and 27 at Boston’s Symphony Hall in “A Broadway Evening with Sutton Foster.” The performer discussed those concerts, her unbridled passion for the “Gilmore Girls” and more by telephone last week from Los Angeles.
Q: What can audiences expect from your upcoming shows with the Pops?
A: The concerts will be a throwback to the roles and songs I’ve done on Broadway, plus songs I’ve recorded and also some new music. I’ll be doing some song and dance, too. I started doing concerts in 2004 when I began collaborating with Michael Rafter, who is now my music director, on another way to show audiences what I can do when I don’t have on sequins or wigs and when I’m without a character to hide behind. Michael and I have done two albums together and we’re working on a third, so we’ll probably do some cuts from that one in Boston. iconplus Read more
