From her pitch-perfect belt to her incredible tapping skills, there's a lot to love about two-time Tony winner Sutton Foster. The triple-threat leading lady, who can play the girl next door or a super-sexy Reno Sweeney, is back on Broadway in the Jeanine Tesori-Brian Crawley musical Violet, which begins performances March 28 at the American Airlines Theatre. Playbill.com is celebrating with our Top Ten Reasons to Love Sutton Foster.
1. Her wacky choice of audition song.
2. She loves dogs (and participates in Broadway Barks).
3. She sang "Maybe This Time" on "Bunheads."
4. She played sign-holder Coco on "Flight of the Concords."
5. She has a cool hidden talent.
6. She did cartwheels across the stage in The Drowsy Chaperone.
Holed up in a seedy motel on the edge of the Mojave Desert, two former lovers unpack the deep secrets and dark desires of their tangled relationship, passionately tearing each other apart. Led by director Daniel Aukin (Back Back Back at MTC, 4,000 Miles), Tony winner Nina Arianda (Venus in Fur at MTC, Born Yesterday) and Sam Rockwell (A Behanding in Spokane, The Way Way Back) bring an explosive intensity to Sam Shepard’s (Buried Child, True West) landmark myth of the new Wild West.
