Sutton Foster, Broadway veteran and star of TV Land’s Younger, will headline the Westport Country Playhouse's 2018 Gala September 8. The gala will honor Eunice and David Bigelow with the 2018 Leadership Award for their vision and philanthropy to the Playhouse.
Foster, whose portrayals of Reno Sweeney in the 2011revival of Anything Goes and Millie Dillmount in Thoroughly Modern Millie earned her Tony Awards, will perform a series of Broadway tunes with a trio of musicians.
“Sutton effectively stops whatever Broadway show she’s in with her amazing combination of talents in dance, song, and a wicked sense of humor,” said Artistic Director Mark Lamos. “She’s a dazzling throwback to the great Broadway stars of yesteryear.”
The theme of the 2018 gala is “Andalusian Nights,” which pays tribute to the Playhouse’s fall production of Man of La Mancha. Gala proceeds will benefit the non-profit theater, which has been producing professional work for 88 seasons.
