@amandakosloski: @sfosternyc I would put her in a revival of My Fair Lady - Eliza Doolittle! She has the awesome comedic timing to make it a hit!
@SuttonFrasier: If not something original, then Eliza Doolittle. Her comedic timing would be absolutely brilliant.

As previously reported, Tony Award-winning director Bartlett Sher has been tapped to direct a Broadway revival of My Fair Lady. Although there was talk of Anne Hathaway starring as Eliza Doolittle, Foster would be perfect for the Cockney flower girl, who gets to perform Alan Jay Lerner-Frederick Loewe classics such as "I Could Have Danced All Night" and "Just You Wait," among others. Although Foster would have big shoes to fill — Eliza was previously played by Julie Andrews, Christine Andreas, Melissa Errico and Kelli O'Hara, among others — we have no doubt that she would earn critical acclaim.
