Sutton Foster‘s debut CD ‘Wish’ will be released February 17th on Ghostlight Records. The album features 15 songs culled from the worlds of jazz, pop, Broadway and cabaret, and highlights Foster’s eclectic choices, ranging from Patty Griffin’s ‘Nobody’s Cryin’ to Duke Ellington’s ‘I Like the Sunrise’…from Frank Loesser’s ‘Warm All Over’ to John Denver’s ‘Sunshine on My Shoulders’.

Tony-winner Foster also looks forward to a sold-out, February 19th, NYC appearance, as part of the popular Lincoln Center Songbook Series.

On February 27th, Foster will perform and sign CDs at an In-Store appearance at Barnes and Noble Lincoln Center, at 5 pm.

Currently starring as Princess Fiona in Broadway’s ‘Shrek The Musical‘, Sutton Foster was given high praise by Ben Brantley of The New York Times, who compared her to musical royalty: “She has emerged as an inspired, take-charge musical comedian in the tradition of Danny Kaye and Carol Burnett…”

Foster’s unique ability to be irreverent and respectful from moment-to-moment shines through on ‘Wish’, as her voice wallops through ‘Oklahoma’ (a bonus track,) only minutes after a delicate, warm delivery of Noel Coward’s ‘Come The Wild, Wild Weather.’ She is a musical chameleon with a voice as appealing as her down-to-earth personality.
