Sutton Foster is teaming up with Amy Sherman-Palladino again. Three years after winning her second lead actress Tony, the Bunheads actress returns to Broadway to star in the 1997 musical Violet, playing a "facially disfigured North Carolina girl in the mid-1960s" who believes a televangelist can make her scar disappear. Bunheads creator Sherman-Palladino is set to produce. The show goes into previews March 28, so Sutton can go ahead and start shopping for her Tony Awards dress on the 29.
