From Broadway baby to Bunheads star, Sutton Foster has traveled down a very exciting path. Born in Georgia, Sutton started taking dance lessons at age four. Before long, she was living in New York City and starring on Broadway! The Tony Award®-winning actress has now made the trip to Hollywood and will soon be starring in Bunheads, the new ABC Spark Original Series.
“In a way, I’m starting at the beginning,” Sutton told Women’s Wear Daily. “I’m not known in the TV field. I hope my theater fans will find me. I’ll be in their living rooms every week.”
Sutton plays Michelle, a Las Vegas showgirl, who impulsively marries a man, moves to his sleepy coastal town, and takes an uneasy role at her new mother-in-law's dance school.
