Sutton Foster has experience with cheering packed crowds and song and dance numbers. But did that adequately prepare her for the rapid-fire dialogue of Gilmore Girls
creator Amy Sherman-Palladino?
Good thing Foster's Broadway career has prepared her for anything. Foster stars in the new ABC Family series Bunheads
as Michelle Sims, who's found her dream of becoming a professional dancer harder than she ever imagined. Now living in Sin City as a Vegas showgirl, Michelle packs up and moves to a sleepy town after a surprising marriage. There she helps her new mother-in-law run a dance studio, Palladino vet Kelly Bishop, who does cold put downs better than anyone else. Michelle will be guiding a group of "bunheads" or aspiring ballerinas, so named because of their signature bun hairdo.
Bunheads is one of our best new shows of summer>>
Foster has won Tonys for her work in Broadway's Thoroughly Modern Millie and Anything Goes. In this exclusive video interview Foster talks to BuddyTV about packing up for the small screen, that fast Palladino dialogue, and getting back into her pointe shoes.
