NBC New York Review of “Violet”
22 April | Posted by Colleen | Filed Under: News

Those expecting to see Sutton Foster belting and tap-dancing her way through her latest Broadway leading-role should be warned: the 39-year-old actress, who won Tonys for her turns in “Thoroughly Modern Millie” and “Anything Goes,” provides a restrained, intricate performance in “Violet,” the Jeanine Tesori-Brian Crawley musical now open at the American Airlines Theatre.

It’s a startling turn from the Foster we’re used to seeing, but one that will transfix you all the same. Stripped of any glitzy costumes, wigs or makeup, Foster stands on stage in a plain sundress, her hair uncombed and pushed behind her ears, and breaths life into a complicated, flawed, hopeful character. You’ll feel as though you’re witnessing a star being reborn, 18 years into her career.

Foster stars as Violet, a stubborn young woman on a quest for personal healing. Violet was 13 when a rogue ax blade struck her in the face. The accident has left her with a ragged scar across her cheek and nose, and 12 years of being bullied and stared at has turned Violet into a shameful, angry and defensive person. Violet’s walls are so high, you’d need a crane to get over them.

We never do see the scar across Violet’s face, but there’s never a moment where Foster lets us forget about the pain it causes Violet. But within that pain is a beam of hope in the form of a televangelist (Ben Davis, of “A Little Night Music”) who Violet naïvely believes will make her “pretty.” So she travels via Greyhound Bus from North Carolina to Oklahoma to see him. And along the way meets two soldiers, Flinck and Monty (Joshua Henry and Colin Donnell, respectively), catalysts for more internal, authentic healing. After all, like any Oz-like pilgrimage, life’s more about what you learn on the journey than at the destination.

14 April | Posted by Colleen | Filed Under: Uncategorized

Sutton Foster is headed back to TV — and keeping it youthful.
TV Land has given a 12-episode order to Younger, a single-camera comedy starring the Bunheads actress.

The series — written and executive-produced by Darren Starr (Sex and the City, Melrose Place) — follows Liza (Foster), a single mother in her early 40s whose stalled publishing career is revitalized when she lies and passes herself off as a 20-something.
The cast also includes Debi Mazar (Entourage) as Liza’s best friend Maggie, Miriam Shor (The Good Wife, GCB) as her temperamental boss Diana and Hilary Duff (Gossip Girl, Lizzie McGuire) as Liza’s new co-worker.

VIOLET tells the story of a young woman’s quest for beauty amidst the image-obsessed landscape of the 1960s. Facially disfigured in a childhood accident, Violet (Foster) dreams of a miraculous transformation through the power of faith. Convinced that a televangelist in Oklahoma can heal her, she hops a Greyhound bus and starts the journey of a lifetime. Along the way, Violet forms unlikely friendships with her fellow riders, who teach her about beauty, love, courage and what it means to be an outsider.

Sutton Foster lives the American dream
15 February | Posted by Colleen | Filed Under: News

In 2011, Sutton Foster was asked to perform at the Kennedy Center Honors in Washington D.C., honoring singer and actress Barbara Cook. Foster asked her brother Hunter, who’s also an actor, to be her date. Before the event, all of the honorees and special guests are invited to the White House. Coming from a small town in Georgia, the siblings were simply overwhelmed.

“We’re sitting in the White House and President Obama is standing 10 feet away from us talking with the honorees,” she said. “So we looked at each other and we’re thinking, ‘How did this happen?’ ‘How did we get here?’ ”
