Her Most Notable Broadway Roles
If you’re a Broadway baby, you know the name Sutton Foster. Though she’s made several movie and TV appearances, her blockbuster vocals and dancing make her the biggest triple threat on the Great White Way.
She started in the 1980s, landing the coveted role of Eponine in the 1987 production of Les Miserables.
She made her first big splash in the revival of Thoroughly Modern Millie in the title role of Millie Dillmount, which won her a Tony.
She then took on huge roles in the productions of Little Women as Jo in 2005 and The Drowsy Chaperone as Janet Van De Graaff in 2006. Then things really took off!
In 2007, she moved right into starring as Inga in Young Frankenstein. The very next year, she originated the role of Princess Fiona in Shrek The Musical.
Then came her next Tony-winning role, Anything Goes, which opened in 2011 with Sutton at the helm as Reno Sweeney.
She then originated the role of Violet in the show Violet in 2014.
Returning to Broadway in 2022, Sutton now stars alongside Hugh Jackman in the revival of The Music Man.
