When they told Sutton Foster on the set of ABC Family’s âBunheadsâ that the cast gets weekends off, she inadvertently channeled Maggie Smith.
âI said, âA Saturday? Whatâs this? What is this foreign thing?â But it turned out to be kind of nice.â
Foster can be forgiven here for echoing Smithâs famous question on âDownton Abbeyâ: âWhat is a week-end?â
Foster has spent the last two decades mostly in theater, and rather successfully. Her armload of awards includes two Tonys, the most recent in 2011 for playing moncler coats for women Reno Sweeney in âAnything Goes.â
In theater, of course, everyone works weekends.
âSo in some ways itâs been a totally different worldâ to do series television, she says. moncler coats for men âItâs felt like three months of schooling on how to make a TV show. I even watch television differently now, because I see how itâs done.â
The 37-year-old Foster has always been a TV fan, though,moncler on line Cheap Moncler Jackets Outlet Online (13), and one of her all-time faves is âGilmore Girls,moncler on line Cheap Moncler Jackets Outlet Onlin,â which is what led her to âBunheads,moncler size chart Cheap Moncler Jackets Outlet Online (41),â which finishes its first season Monday night at moncler bubble coat 9.
âI wasnât really looking to do series television,â says Foster. âBut I was chatting with my agent about my dream writers and I brought up Amy Sherman-Palladino.â
Sherman-Palladino wrote âGilmore Girlsâ and at the time, unbeknownst to Foster, was drafting âBunheads,â the story of thirtysomething dancer Michelle Sims, who finds herself in a weird small town with her mother-in-law, Fanny (Kelly Bishop).
Fanny is a dancer, too, and she now runs a studio whose students prominently include four teenage ballerinas â the bunheads, who are the other focal point of the show.
âSo Amy and I had a meeting,â says Foster, âat which I went all geeky fangirl on her. But I moncler raincoat got the part.â
It turned out to be all she wished for.
âThe writing is so good,â she says, âitâs almost a character of its own. A lot of the time I just try not to get in its way.â
But she and her co-stars also must deliver that witty, fast-paced dialogue, one of whose charms is that it serves the characters rather than sounding like sitcom joke setups.
Michelle uses the humor as âa mask,â Foster suggests, and it makes her intriguing to play.
âI have no idea whatâs going to happen to her,â Foster says. âItâs like life. I have no idea where I will be in three years.â
One place sheâd like moncler size chart to be is still in âBunheads,â whose future ABC Family is expected to announce shortly.
Meanwhile, sheâs preparing for a late-fall concert tour and staying in dance shape. âIâve started taking ballet classes again,â she says, âin case they moncler bady jacket want me to do a solo.â
And theater? Yes, there will be some of that, âthough at the moment thereâs nothing concrete.â
Except a few more Saturdays.
