Sutton Foster Wins Special Award for Best Performance of the Entire Broadway Season!

Sutton Foster just won one of the biggest honors in the Broadway community!

The two-time Tony-winning actress was presented the Distinguished Performance Award during the 2022 Drama League Awards on Friday afternoon (May 20) in New York City.

The annual awards show honors just one acting performance for the entire theatrical season, encompassing all of Broadway and off-Broadway.

Sutton won the award for her performance in The Music Man and her co-star Hugh Jackman received the Distinguished Achievement in Musical Theatre award. Actors can only win the Distinguished Performance Award once in their career and Hugh won almost 20 years ago for starring in Broadway’s The Boy From Oz, so he was ineligible for The Music Man.

Get Your First Look at 'Beetlejuice' on Broadway with These Pics!

The new musical Beetlejuice, based on the beloved Tim Burton movie, is now playing on Broadway and the first official production photos have been released!

Tony nominee Alex Brightman stars in the title role while newcomer Sophia Anne Caruso, who is already a two-time Lortel Award nominee, plays Lydia.

Beetlejuice tells the story of Lydia Deetz, a strange and unusual teenager whose life changes when she meets a recently deceased couple and Beetlejuice, a demon with a thing for stripes. When Lydia calls on Beetlejuice to scare away anyone with a pulse, this double-crossing specter unleashes a (Nether)world of pandemonium, and the biggest sandworm Broadway has ever seen.

Also starring in the new production are Kerry Butler, Rob McClure, Leslie Kritzer, and more. The official opening night is on April 25!
