We're counting down the days to the 2013 Broadway.com Audience Choice Awards with fun facts and features every day!
Friday, April 5 - 30 Days to the Big Night!
With a whopping eight wins, Broadway's golden girl Sutton Foster is the undisputed queen of the Broadway.com Audience Choice Awards! Let us count the ways!
Foster won her first Broadway.com Audience Choice Awards in 2002 for her star-making leading lady turn in Thoroughly Modern Millie. She was named Favorite Leading Actress in a Broadway Musical and Favorite Breakthrough Performance for the role, which also earned her a Tony Award that year. TROPHY TOTAL: 2
But that's not all! She also shared a third win with co-star Gavin Creel, who broke onto Broadway with his turn as Jazz Age Jimmy in the musical. The dynamic duo was named Favorite Onstage Pair by Broadway.com readers. (Creel has gone on to win two more without Foster!) TROPHY TOTAL: 3
After finishing her run in Millie, Foster headlined the musical version of the classic novel Little Women, winning two more Broadway.com Audience Choice Awards in the categories of Favorite Leading Actress in a Musical and Favorite Diva Performance. TROPHY TOTAL: 5
Next up: a 2008 win for the big-budget Mel Brooks musical Young Frankenstein. Foster played good-time gal Inga opposite Roger Bart as Dr. Frederick Frankenstein. Together, the Broadway favorites triumphed in the category of Favorite Onstage Pair. TROPHY TOTAL: 6
Foster joined the big green guy in the Broadway musical version of Shrek. As a fetching Fiona, she won another trophy in the category of Favorite Diva Performance. TROPHY TOTAL: 7
Finally, Foster tapped her way to her eighth trophy in 2011 for Favorite Actress in a Musical for Anything Goes. TROPHY TOTAL: 8!
