Talking to celebrities is a blast. Talking to celebrities and celebrity puppets sounds even better. So when Tony nominee Sutton Foster and Sesame Street’s Elmo offered to reunite to discuss the former’s upcoming appearance on the children’s show next fall — and give PopWatch readers an exclusive peek at the full-length video — I jumped to say “yes.” Turns out the old friends — Sutton auditioned with Elmo for a regular spot on Sesame Street in 2004 — were as cute and funny as I thought they’d be.
