Broadway's Award-Winning Sutton Foster
In One-Night Benefit At Huntington Theatre

Tony Award-winning Broadway musical theater star Sutton Foster will perform her one-woman cabaret show "An Evening with Sutton Foster," on Monday, November 15, at 7:30 p.m. at the Calderwood Pavilion at the BCA as a benefit for the Huntington Theatre Company. She will be accompanied by acclaimed musical director Michael Rafter, who has conducted for such Broadway hits as "Gypsy," "Jersey Boys" and "Everyday Rapture."

The performance will be preceded by intimate pre-show dinners at a host of South End restaurants and private homes, and will be followed by a VIP Post-Show Cast Party with Sutton and Friends.

Tickets for "An Evening with Sutton Foster" begin at $150; tickets for the pre-show dinner plus the performance are priced at $250; tickets for all three events are $350. Proceeds from the events will benefit the Huntington’s productions and youth, education, and community programs.

Sutton Foster most recently appeared in this summer’s Off Broadway hit comedy "Trust," written by Paul Weitz and directed by Huntington Artistic Director Peter DuBois at Second Stage Theatre. She received a Tony Award for her performance as Millie Dillmount in "Thoroughly Modern Millie" and has also appeared as Princess Fiona in "Shrek: The Musical," Inga in the Mel Brooks musical "Young Frankenstein," Janet Van De Graaff in "The Drowsy Chaperone," and Jo March in "Little Women – The Musical." Earlier this year, she starred in the sold-out limited run City Center Encores! production of Stephen Sondheim's "Anyone Can Whistle" and will star in the 2011 Roundabout Theatre Company revival of "Anything Goes." Her debut solo CD, "Wish" (on Ghostlight Records), was released last year to critical acclaim.

Of Ms. Foster's talents, The New York Times commented, "The radiance of Julia Roberts and the zany spunk of Holly Golightly only begin to describe the seductive charms of Sutton Foster in her irresistible cabaret show. Backstage added, “Enchanting, unpretentious, and thoroughly irresistible . . . performing numbers that showcase the versatility of her singing voice and the breadth of her acting prowess, Foster is bedazzling. A new cabaret star is born!”

The pre-show three- course dinners will occur at a selection of fine South End restaurants and at the private homes of Huntington staff, trustees, overseers, and friends including Artistic Director Peter DuBois, and Huntington Overseer Neal Balkowitsch. All dinners will begin at 5 p.m.; locations will be assigned.

The VIP Post-Show Cast Party with Sutton and Friends will be held in the Carol G. Deane Hall at the Calderwood Pavilion.

“An Evening with Sutton Foster” is co-chaired by Huntington Overseers Neal Balkowitsch, Anne Fitzpatrick Cucchiaro, John Frishkopf, and Debbie Lewis. It is a new Huntington initiative and complements the Spotlight Spectacular! annual gala held each spring.
