Sutton Foster to Join Boston Gay Men's Chorus for 35th Anniversary Concert
The event will take place at Symphony Hall.
The Boston Gay Men's Chorus will celebrate its 35th anniversary with a concert featuring two-time Tony winner Sutton Foster. The show, titled Anything Goes, will take place Sunday, June 4, at Symphony Hall during Boston Pride Week, the city's annual celebration of the LGBTQ community.
Featuring Foster alongside 175 members of the Boston Gay Men's Chorus and a 20-piece orchestra, Anything Goes will showcase songs from the classic Cole Porter musical of the same name. Foster, who will perform a solo set at the top of the concert's second half, won her second Tony for her turn as Reno Sweeney in the 2011 Broadway revival of the beloved show.
The concert also includes songs by Rufus Wainwright, a new commission by Vermont-based composer Gwyneth Walker, and, as part of the worldwide Leonard Bernstein at 100 centennial celebration, a medley of the Massachusetts-born composer's work, including selections from West Side Story, On the Town, and Candide.
In addition to starring in Anything Goes, Foster has appeared in Thoroughly Modern Millie, The Drowsy Chaperone, Young Frankenstein, Violet, and Shrek the Musical. On television, she has starred in Bunheads and, currently, Younger.
