With the recent success of the Encores! Off-Center one-night-only concert presentation of Violet, starring Tony winner Sutton Foster, we wondered: What should Foster's next Broadway project be?
Playbill.com polled our readers via Facebook and Twitter asking what role should Foster tackle next and why.
Here are some reader responses followed by our own commentary.
@DonaldGarverick: Revival of Violet! @ThatDarnZach: @sfosternyc VIOLET. It's sort of a no-brainer!! @jensandler: I would love to see Violet get a full revival production with Sutton continuing in the title role!
Foster led the cast of the July 17 concert performance of Jeanine Tesori's Violet, which also featured Joshua Henry, Van Hughes and Keala Settle. It was noted that "Foster shone in the title role, portraying both the brittle defenses Violet had developed due to her disfigurement as well as the innocence and vulnerability of her character." Read the full Playbill.com recap here. With such a star-studded cast, we're hoping that producers transfer Violet to Broadway this season.
