The story slipped under the wire, but it turns out that she's appearing in New York now in a limited-run production of the musical, Sweet Charity. And "limited" is the appropriate word -- it opened in late November and runs through January 8. And that's with two extensions. There's a charming and not-surprisingly energetic video posted of her in one of the more-fun numbers from the show, "If My Friends Could See Me Now." Unfortunately, the production didn't release the full performance, only part as (I assume) a teaser, but it's pretty long one, as far as teasers go, so we get to see her charming rendition.
(It must be a wonderful production to see, since this is clearly in a very intimate setting, with a thrust stage going into the audience, rather than a Big Broadway House.)
Given that the show is only running for six weeks, is in a small theater, and likely was sold out within weeks, if not days of being announced, I doubt there was a great need to tease anything, and a longer video wouldn't have been problematic. But still, it's good to have this.
That brings us to part two. And this is the part that says we should have seen this coming.
Back in 2012, Foster starred in a short-lived series on the ABC Family channel, called Bunheads. She played a former ballerina who ends up a Las Vegas showgirl, and then ultimately, through a variety of plot twists in the pilot, becomes a ballet teacher in a small California coastal town.
She still has thoughts of dancing, and in one episode she does go and audition for a show. The number she auditions with? "If My Friends Could See Me Now"...!!
(For the record, no, I wasn't aware of this connection. I didn't especially watch the series and only saw two epsiodes, though it was well-done. But I read a comment online with the Sweet Charity video, and tracked down this clip below.)
