Tony Award Winner Sutton Foster To Star In New Play Off-Broadway

That's right theatre fans. One of Broadway's most beloved stars is making her Off-Broadway debut this Summer. It was just announced today that Tony Award winner Sutton Foster will join Zach Braff (Scrubs), Bobby Cannavale (Will and Grace, Mauritius),and Ari Graynor (The Littlle Dog Laughed) in Trust. This new play by Paul Weitz is set to begin previews on July 23, 2010 at Off-Broadway's Second Stage Theatre.

Here is a synopsis of the show from a production source. "Harry is rich," according to production notes. "Harry is married. But when Harry doesn’t trust any of it is enough, he looks to find something real in the most unlikely of places." The dark comedy "explores the corrosive effect of power on relationships and the hope we need to make them better."

As of now the show is scheduled to run thru September 5th but if reviews are good I'm almost positive it will extend. For years Sutton Foster has been the go to actress when a musical needs a cute but quirky ingenue who can do at all. Hopefully this new role will give her a chance to show another side to this Broadway favorite. Tickets are set to go on sale soon and I expect them to go very fast so don't delay. Get your tickets to see the new play Trust.I don't know about you but I can't wait to see it. Maybe I'll see you there.
