Ok, I know not everyone who reads my blog is as big of a musical theatre nerd as myself...so I'm guessing not all of you know who Sutton Foster is. All I have to say about that is a big fat SHAME ON YOU.
I know what kind of musical theatre consumer you are. You love Wicked. You know who Idina Menzel is. You think Phantom of the Opera is one of the greatest musicals of all time. And of course you've seen Les Mis. So you think you're pretty cool stuff. Wrong, I say!
Have you seen Throughouly Modern Millie? Have you heard the soundtrack to "Little Women" (yes, the Broadway musical)? Do you know that Sutton Foster has won 2 Tony Awards? She's phenomenal. She is absolutely adorable. AND SHE'S COMING TO BYU Sept. 5th and 6th. It is going to be an absolute DELIGHT. (And I could tell you some things about her. A few of my friends have been in Broadway shows with her. She hates wearing makeup and dressing up. Or I could tell you about the time my (then-single) friend, Kyler Kronmiller, asked her out on a date after her show. The details are fuzzy, but I remember it involved some awkwardness).
Leave a comment telling me why you need a night out to hear this diva. She will melt your heart and make you laugh all in one breath. I prom dress! Don't believe me? Look her up on Youtube.
*Tickets are for Friday, Sept 5th and you'll be seated next to me and Victor Schmictor. Winner will be announced one week from today.
