Music Man stars Sutton Foster and Hugh Jackman are the hottest thing on Broadway. The Music Man is leading all the charts and its leading stars are everywhere on mainstream media.
Sutton Foster of the Music Man on CBS Mornings
Sutton Foster appeared on CBS Mornings on April 28. She talked about starring in the Music Man, the youthful cast, and working with Hugh Jackman.
She also spoke about the impact that the show has on her as a mother. The Music Man was her daughter’s first opportunity to see her mom perform on stage, which helped Foster find new dimensions to her character’s songs.
Sutton Foster is a two-time Tony Awards Winner, winning the Best Actress Award in 2002 and in 2011 for her role as Millie Dillmount in Thoroughly Modern Millie and as Reno Sweeney in Anything Goes.
The cast also includes Remy Auberjonois as Charlie Cowell, Gino Cosculluela as Tommy Djilas, Emma Crow as Zaneeta Shinn, Benjamin Pajak as Winthrop, Kayla Teruel as Amaryllis, Garrett Long as Ethel Toffelmier, Linda Mugleston as Alma Hix, Jessica Sheridan as Maud Dunlop, Rema Webb as Mrs. Squires, Tony nominee Phillip Boykin as Olin Britt, Eddie Korbich as Jacey Squires, Daniel Torres as Ewart Dunlop, Nicholas Ward as Oliver Hix, and Max Clayton as the standby for Harold Hill.
Trouble arose in River City when con man Harold Hill came to town. There’s only one problem with his plans – he’s in love with Marianne, the no-nonsense librarian. The Music Man features songs such as “Seventy-Six Trombones,” “Trouble,” “‘Til There Was You,” “Pickalittle” and “Gary, Indiana.”
