Tony Awards: 'Anything Goes,' Sutton Foster win awards
"Anything Goes," the Coler Porter musical revived this season by the Roundabout Theatre Company, has scored two major wins at the Tony Awards -- musical revival and lead actress Sutton Foster.
Foster, playing the role immortalized by Ethel Merman, thanked her current boyfriend (and fellow nominee) Bobby Cannavale. She also tearfully thanked her dresser of many years, who she said would be moving away.
The actress won the Tony in the same category in 2002 for "Thoroughly Modern Millie." The other nominees in the category this year were Beth Leavel, Patina Miller and Donna Murphy.
"Anything Goes" won the musical revival award over "How To Succeed in Business Without Really Trying."
