Photo credit: MATT HARRINGTONWe sat down with Broadway and TV star Sutton Foster to talk this season of Younger, an upcoming role on the Gilmore Girls reboot, and her fun partnership with HomeGoods, interior designer Mike Harrison, and theater dresser Julien Havard, to make backstage dressing rooms feel like home.
Sutton Foster is no stranger to reinvention. In addition to her ever-changing and varied roles on the stage and screen—as everyone from Anything Goes’ iconic Reno Sweeney to TV Land’s beloved Liza Miller on Younger—she recently revamped her New York City apartment in partnership with HomeGoods. The result is a whimsical and highly personalized space that features tons of color, original artworks, and retro accents that accurately reflect Foster’s open and exuberant personality.

“I’m a huge fan. It’s one of my favorite stores,” the Younger star, 41, gushes about her home decor “go-to.” So when the retailer, which also helped design her New York apartment, approached the actress about decorating her dressing room, she jumped at the chance. “I spend a ton of time in dressing rooms,” she says. “If I’m doing two shows in a day [on Broadway], I’ll be there all day. It kind of becomes my space… a home away from home.” iconplus Read more

Playbill | Sutton Foster Talks Taking on Charity

From creating women like Millie Dillmount and Janet Van De Graaff to bringing life characters like Jo March and Princess Fiona, from her own takes on iconic women like Queenie and Reno Sweeney, Foster brings bravado, humor and often an endearing quirkiness to her characters—not to mention her powerhouse vocals and pristine dance technique. It’s no surprise that audiences can’t wait to see Foster take on Sweet Charity with the New Group come November 2.
“I’m super excited and super scared,” says Foster at a press event to promote the third season of her hit TVLand show Younger. “I like to do things that scare me, and I like to do things that push me and make me grow, and this is one of them. It’ll be a lot of flop-sweat and probably a lot of tears, so it will be all out there.”

Sutton-Foster--Broadway--YouTube--Interview--New-York-Pops[About Gimme Gimme on The Rosie O’Donnell Show] You know what’s crazy? We did that during previews, and honestly my voice was so fried that I couldn’t even get through the sound check of the song. I didn’t have the technique or stamina yet for eight-shows-a-week—I was so green and so new. I remember my voice teacher Joan Lader warmed me up on the phone before because I couldn’t hit any of the big notes during sound check. I thought, ‘This is going to be a disaster. I’m going to be flat on national television.’
