The Tony-winning actress who created lead roles in "Thoroughly Modern Millie," "The Drowsy Chaperone," 'Little Women," "Young Frankenstein" and "Shrek: The Musical" will be performing in concert at the Palladium on Oct. 5. The event benefits Actors Theatre of Indiana, the professional theater company in residence at the Center for the Performing Arts.

 

 

While it's her first concert in the area, Sutton Foster—best known to non-theater audiences as the lead on ABC Family's series "Bunheads"—is no stranger to the area. Although not connected to Indiana by family or education. Foster has been very involved with Ball State University's theater program. Not only has she taught master clases there (see IBJ story here), but she also co-directed a production of "The Drowsy Chaperone" (reviewed here). More recently, she has been involved in the development of the Ball State-incubated musical "The Circus in Winter."

Concert tickets go on sale to the general public July 12.

Actors Theatre of Indiana begins its 2013/2014 season in September with "Always, Patsy Cline."

  • A must see
    Sutton Foster is a terrifically talented lady. Looking forward to seeing her. We had tickets to see her in Young Frankenstein, but we got the understudy. Fortunately, we were able to see her in Shrek. We also saw her brother in Million Dollar Quartet.

  1. I'm a CPA who works with a wide range of companies (through my firm K.B.Parrish & Co.); however, we work with quite a few car dealerships, so I'm fairly interested in Fatwin (mentioned in the article). Does anyone have much information on that, or a link to such information? Thanks.

  2. Historically high long-term unemployment, unprecedented labor market slack and the loss of human capital should not be accepted as "the economy at work [and] what is supposed to happen" and is certainly not raising wages in Indiana. See Chicago Fed Reserve: goo.gl/IJ4JhQ Also, here's our research on Work Sharing and our support testimony at yesterday's hearing: goo.gl/NhC9W4

  3. I am always curious why teachers don't believe in accountability. It's the only profession in the world that things they are better than everyone else. It's really a shame.

  4. It's not often in Indiana that people from both major political parties and from both labor and business groups come together to endorse a proposal. I really think this is going to help create a more flexible labor force, which is what businesses claim to need, while also reducing outright layoffs, and mitigating the impact of salary/wage reductions, both of which have been highlighted as important issues affecting Hoosier workers. Like many other public policies, I'm sure that this one will, over time, be tweaked and changed as needed to meet Indiana's needs. But when you have such broad agreement, why not give this a try?

  5. I could not agree more with Ben's statement. Every time I look at my unemployment insurance rate, "irritated" hardly describes my sentiment. We are talking about a surplus of funds, and possibly refunding that, why, so we can say we did it and get a notch in our political belt? This is real money, to real companies, large and small. The impact is felt across the board; in the spending of the company, the hiring (or lack thereof due to higher insurance costs), as well as in the personal spending of the owners of a smaller company.
