Firsts & Worsts: Sutton Foster on awkward headshots and bad 'Millie' reviews

Every actor has to start somewhere — and when it comes to theater performers, their roots are often similar, right down to the roles they cut their teeth on or the songs they first used at an audition.

From Millie to Violet, Sutton Foster has seen and sung it all, and she’s got the stories to share about her time on the Broadway stage — and the much smaller stages in her hometown in Georgia. Foster is the latest theater star to recount some of her favorite (or least favorite) musical memories in Entertainment Weekly’s Firsts & Worsts Series.

Foster was game to share stories about her first lines (as Fan in A Christmas Carol), her worst review (“Get the hook!”), and the early theater experiences that shaped her as an actress today. Bonus points for an embarrassing confession of a particularly phallic Scarlet Pimpernel costume.

It’s only natural, then, that Karl becomes the second star in Entertainment Weekly’s Firsts & Worsts series, which charts the early theater stories of some of your favorite stage actors.

Every actor started somewhere — and when it comes to theater performers, their roots are often similar, right down to the roles they cut their teeth on or the songs they first used at an audition.

Entertainment Weekly is launching a brand-new video series called Firsts & Worsts, dedicated to getting the unheard stories behind the beginnings of some of your favorite stage stars. Kicking off this exciting new project is the one and only Audra McDonald, a record-setting five-time Tony Award winner who recently earned her monumental eighth nomination. Lady McDonald is currently delivering one of Broadway’s most exquisite and haunting performances as the late jazz singer Billie Holiday in Lady Day at Emerson’s Bar & Grill, a role that McDonald says is, terrifyingly, her first time portraying a real-life legend.
