Somewhere in the middle of filming the last season of Younger and a concert in the city center – and start of rehearsals for The music man –Sutton Foster found time to do what the rest of us said in the middle of months of quarantine: write a book. The two-time Tony winner will publish her memoir Hooked: How the craft saved my life 12th of October.
The star has actually been tinkering since her early performance days and finds solace in the calming rhythm of needle and thread. Since then, Foster has expanded her hobby to include cross stitching, crocheting collages, drawing, and more.
According to Grand Central Publishing, the book offers fun and intimate stories and reflections on how the craft kept Foster sane as it navigated the ups and downs of family, love, and show business – and how it can help readers too. Sutton added crochet patterns, recipes, and more to the stories.
The book can now be pre-ordered. Click here for more info.
The Broadway Revival of The music man, with Foster as Paroo alongside Hugh Jackman’s Harold Hill, is slated to open December 22nd at the Winter Garden Theater.
