Early Years. Sutton Foster was only born on March 18, 1975, to Helen and Bob Foster. She was actually born in Statesboro, Georgia, where her family originally came from, but she was raised mainly in Troy, Michigan. She is actually the youngest sister of both the world famous Broadway actor Hunter Foster and her older brother, Robert (deceased).
Her Personal Life. She had a rather difficult childhood, which is documented in her first marriage, to Robert Hunter, when she was only 16 years old. This marriage, however, would prove to be the beginning of a series of events that would unfold throughout her life and into adulthood. Her two sisters also had husbands, which helped Sutton Foster deal with more emotional and personal stress than was usual for her. This marriage, though, proved to be the foundation for her musical career. On her first national tour with her band, the Yardbirds, Hunter Foster had to deal with the death of her close friend and former stage actress, Priscilla Washburn.

f which appeared in the New York Times Magazine under the title, “S Sutton Foster: The Rose Tattoo Musical,” she decided to write and record a song about her own experiences in the theater. The resulting track, titled, “S Sutton Foster: The Rose Tattoo Musical,” became one of her biggest hits. It went on to reach number one on the charts and was sung by the likes of Patti LaBelle, Ava Gardner, and Carol Burnett.
After her Broadway revival, her second major role came in the film adaptation of Mary E. Didfield’s novel The Dying Game. Foster played the title role, which was directed by Blake Edwards. She did an admirable job in this film, playing a young woman who discovers that her friend and colleague Lee Baucom (Robbie Williams) has died. She shows the ability to both love and respect people whose views she disagrees with, demonstrating a talent not often found in actresses of her time. Her performance earned her two Golden Globe nominations and made her one of the best leading ladies ever.
The Last Night We Left Tokyo. This film stars Sutton Foster as Sayuri Hara, a member of a professional baseball team who is shipped to Japan to perform part of her grandmother’s will. She soon finds herself thrown into a different world when a chance arises for her to go on a wild date with a baseball player from Japan. But Sayuri is caught up in the life of a man she doesn’t know, and in order to keep her mind occupied, she decides to help a group of Mongolians rescue a woman from slavery. Ultimately, Sayuri becomes the main protagonist in this musical, receiving a slew of memorable supporting performances.
My Fair Lady. It was on my list of favorites barely many people, but Sutton Foster brought a new perspective to the classic story of Miss Watson. In this adaptation of Jane Austen’s classic story, the role of Miss Watson is played by Jessica Tandy, an accomplished and beautiful actress whose beauty is matched only by her ability to give other people’s power and hope. Jessica Tandy’s career has spanned parts of four decades, starting out with such iconic roles as The Stepford Wives and reuniting with her Coppola films, including My Fair Lady. She has also spent some time working with director Steven Spielberg and director Tom Cruise, producing the award-winning Eyes Wide Shut.
