Despite winning two Tonys, Sutton Foster was ready for something different. She said that starring in the hit production of Anything Goes was wearing her out. “I did 300 performances,” she said. “Doing the same thing every night. I had to overcome a lot personally and professionally. I needed something new. I was thinking maybe I should take a year off and move to San Diego and work in a taco shack.”
Having earned her fame in her Tony Award winning roles in Thoroughly Modern Millie and Anything Goes, Foster talks about why she is making the transition to television for the series written by Rosanne and Gilmore Girls writer Amy Sherman-Palladino.
