Friday, September 27
7:30 p.m.
 

Woltosz Theatre

Renowned performer of stage and screen Sutton Foster’s vivacious cabaret act features the multi-talented phenom singing everything from show tunes  to pop to country. A celebrated Broadway actress with multiple awards and nominations to her credit, Foster has twice won the Tony Award for Best Performance by a Leading Actress in a Musical, once in 2002 for her role as Millie Dumont in Thoroughly Modern Millie, and again in 2011 as the evangelist-turned-nightclub singer Reno Sweeny in Anything Goes. Her acclaimed theater career spans two decades and includes roles in productions of Grease, Annie, Les Misérables, South Pacific, Funny Girl, Young Frankenstein and Shrek The Musical.

As a solo artist, Foster has graced the stages of Carnegie Hall, Feinstein’s, and Lincoln Center’s American Songbook series, and has toured the country with a hit solo concert featuring songs from her debut album, Wish, as well as her follow-up, An Evening with Sutton Foster: Live at the Cafe Carlyle. She released her third solo album, Take Me to the World , in June 2018.

Foster currently stars as Liza in the critically acclaimed TV Land series, Younger, which returns for its sixth season in 2019. Previously, Sutton played the role of Michelle Simms in Amy Sherman-Palladino’s ABC Family series, Bunheads, for which she earned a Critics’ Choice Television Award nomination for Best Actress in a Comedy Series. She also guest-starred in Sherman-Palladino’s Netflix revival Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life, released in late 2016.
