The Cincinnati Pops Orchestra and Conductor John Morris Russell welcome Sutton Foster to the stage at the Taft Theatre February 24-26 for her Pops debut. The star of Broadway, television and beyond will perform beloved tunes from her Broadway hits, as well as works from the Cole Porter songbook in recognition of the songwriter’s 125th birthday.
“Cole Porter’s extraordinarily witty and sophisticated marriage of melody and lyric created a unique sound in American musical theater. Songs like ‘I’ve Got You Under My Skin,’ ‘Anything Goes,’ ‘Ev’ry Time We Say Goodbye,’ and ‘In the Still of the Night’ have come to define an era of class and refinement,” said Mr. Russell.
A two-time Tony Award winner for her work in Thoroughly Modern Millie and Anything Goes, Sutton Foster has also starred in Broadway productions of Shrek the Musical, Little Women, The Drowsy Chaperone, Young Frankenstein, and Violet. She is currently performing in Broadway’s Sweet Charity, and can be seen on television in Younger and Bunheads, as well as the recent Netflix season of the hit series Gilmore Girls. In these Pops concerts, she’ll perform “I Get a Kick Out of You” from Anything Goes, “If I Were a Bell” from Guys and Dolls, “Down With Love” from Hooray for What! among many others.
Tickets for these performances start at just $25 and are available by calling the Pops Box Office at (513) 381-3300 or visiting www.cincinnatipops.org.

Cincinnati Pops at the Taft Theatre
The Orchestra’s home at Music Hall is closed for renovation until fall of 2017. The Pops will perform its 2016-17 season concerts at the historic Taft Theatre in Downtown Cincinnati. The Orchestra has invested over $3 million in improvements to the Taft Theatre, making it an audience- and performer-friendly “home away from home.” Subscribers to the CSO and Pops enjoy many benefits, including free, guaranteed parking thanks to the generosity of Western & Southern.
