Broadway favorite Sutton Foster has canceled the remainder of her three-week concert series at Cafe Carlyle due to a family emergency. The two-time Tony winner, who was originally slated to appear at the legendary venue from September 10 through 28, will no longer perform her last several sold-out shows. The Cafe Carlyle is working to reschedule these appearances at a future date, with additional details to be announced shortly.
In Foster’s place, the Cafe Carlyle will feature the Chris Gillespie Trio on September 24, the David Budway Trio and Donna Lewis on September 25, Tony winner Christine Ebersole and Natalie Douglas on September 26 and September 27, and Ebersole on September 28.
Featuring musical direction by Michael Rafter, Foster’s solo show included a mix of popular music and show tunes, including numbers from her stage career. Foster is known for her Tony-winning turns in Thoroughly Modern Millie and Anything Goes. Her other notable Broadway credits include Young Frankenstein, The Drowsy Chaperone, The Scarlet Pimpernel and Little Women. Foster was last seen on the small screen in the short-lived ABC Family series Bunheads.
