Biography

One of the few real triple threats of her generation, Sutton Foster was admired by theatergoers and critics alike for her remarkable dancing, singing and acting skills. This long-legged Tony Award winning actress was best known for her stage work, having originated the roles in many Broadway shows, including the role of Millie Dillmount in the Broadway version of "Thoroughly Modern Millie." With an outsized talent, she fully embraced her ambitions, performing in national tours of shows, Off-Broadway productions, on television in "Bunheads" (ABC 2012-), and in concert. Taking the reigns of her own career path, she also taught dance, wrote and toured for her multiple solo albums and continued to be a inspiration to her peers of what a modern performer can be.
