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.” […]
