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. How can any company that has the cash and other assets be allowed to simply foreclose and not pay the debt? Simon, pay the debt and sell the property yourself. Don't just stiff the bank with the loan and require them to find a buyer.

  2. If you only knew....

  3. The proposal is structured in such a way that a private company (who has competitors in the marketplace) has struck a deal to get "financing" through utility ratepayers via IPL. Competitors to BlueIndy are at disadvantage now. The story isn't "how green can we be" but how creative "financing" through captive ratepayers benefits a company whose proposal should sink or float in the competitive marketplace without customer funding. If it was a great idea there would be financing available. IBJ needs to be doing a story on the utility ratemaking piece of this (which is pretty complicated) but instead it suggests that folks are whining about paying for being green.

  4. The facts contained in your post make your position so much more credible than those based on sheer emotion. Thanks for enlightening us.

  5. Please consider a couple of economic realities: First, retail is more consolidated now than it was when malls like this were built. There used to be many department stores. Now, in essence, there is one--Macy's. Right off, you've eliminated the need for multiple anchor stores in malls. And in-line retailers have consolidated or folded or have stopped building new stores because so much of their business is now online. The Limited, for example, Next, malls are closing all over the country, even some of the former gems are now derelict.Times change. And finally, as the income level of any particular area declines, so do the retail offerings. Sad, but true.
