She will be followed in the Town Hall series by Jessie Mueller, Tony Award winner for "Beautiful - The Carole King Musical" and most recently a Tony-nominee in Sarah Barielles' "Waitress," making her P-Town debut for the Broadway @ Town Hall series on September 3 at 6:30 p.m. with Sirius XM radio star Seth Rudetsky as pianist and host.

The series kicks off on August 6 at 6:30 p.m. with Megan Hilty, breakout star of NBC TV's "Smash" and Broadway's "Wicked" and a Tony nominee for the recent Broadway production of "Noises Off," joined by Sirius XM Radio Star Seth Rudetsky as pianist and host.

Sutton Foster is a two-time Tony winning actress, singer and dancer who most recently starred in the title role of the New Group's 50th anniversary revival of "Sweet Charity," directed by "Violet" director Leigh Silverman. She was nominated for another Tony Award in Jeanine Tesori and Brian Crawley musical "Violet" at New York's Roundabout Theatre in 2014. She starred on Broadway in "The Will Rogers Follies," "Grease," "The Scarlet Pimpernel," "Annie," and "Les Misérables" before her big break and Tony Award-winning performance in "Thoroughly Modern Millie."

She has since then originated roles in the Broadway productions of "Little Women," "The Drowsy Chaperone," "Young Frankenstein," and "Shrek the Musical." She starred as Reno Sweeney in The Roundabout's revival of "Anything Goes," a role that earned her the 2011 Tony, Drama Desk, Outer Critics, Astaire, and Broadway.com's Audience Favorite Awards.

Sutton was first seen on television on "Star Search" at age 15, and has appeared in "Johnny and the Sprites" and "Flight of the Conchords." More recently, she was the star of the ABC Family TV ballet 'dramedy' "Bunheads," created by "Gilmore Girls" writer/producer Amy Sherman-Palladino. She is the star of the TV Land series "Younger" by "Sex and the City" creator Darren Star, now in its fourth season, and co-starring Hilary Duff and Debi Mazar.

She has also recently appeared on the prestigious 36th Annual Kennedy Center Honors broadcast, where she performed a medley of hit Broadway songs made famous by honoree Shirley MacLaine, including "Something Better Than This," "Steam Heat" and "She's No Longer A Gypsy."

The Broadway @ Town Hall series will be raising funds this year for Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS. The 2017 Art House and Town Hall season produced by Mark Cortale is sponsored by Cape Air, Anchor Inn Beach House, Ptown Bikes, Loveland and Provincetown Gym.
