young & hungry

Did you know…Sutton Foster!

Sutton Foster’s star opportunity was reminiscent of the musical 42nd Street when, during rehearsals of the pre-Broadway run of Thoroughly Modern Millie at the La Jolla Playhouse in San Diego, she replaced leading lady Erin Dilly. Any apprehension about having an unknown playing the lead in a nearly $10 million Broadway production was proven unfounded when she opened at the Marquis Theatre to many positive reviews.  

The New York Daily News reviewer wrote that “newcomer Sutton Foster, who has the pert look, the silver voice and the dazzling legwork to make an extraordinarily winning Millie.”

Clive Barnes, reviewing for the New York Post wrote “Newcomer Sutton Foster’s own star turn as Millie is perfectly charming, but as a star she doesn’t twinkle, glitter or light up Broadway like a Christmas tree defying a July noon. But she has a good voice and is cutely agreeable.”

Her performance as Millie won her the first Tony Award of her career.

why didn't you like hamiltons america :000

okay so i mean this is just my personal opinion but!!!! i just felt like the whole doc revolved around hamiltons story and like….we all already know hamiltons story. you know young scrappy hungry war affair etc, we all know the story already, so the doc just felt like an unnecessary rehashing of the plot of the musical.

all i rlly wanted from the doc was like….insight on behind the scenes at the show, more testimony about the music, MORE MUSICAL SCENES, like….did we even hear from oak at all?????? yeah i get lin wrote the musical but can we PLEASE hear from someone other than him???? more renee?? more pippa, more daveed, more jas and ant??????

it was alright. it wasnt bad, i was just expecting more i guess lol

Move on, leave, run away, escape this place… but don’t forget about me, about us, about this town. Always remember where you come from so you can appreciate how far you’ve come.

You claim to love her, inside and out, but the only time you call her beautiful is when it’s 3 in the morning and I’ve already turned you down.
