BWW PHOTO SPECIAL: IN THE SPOTLIGHT - The Women of 2011

2011 was nothing if not fruitful for Broadway's famous females. Sutton Foster won her second Tony. Brooke Shields, Kim Cattrall, Tyne Daly and more found their way back to the Great White Way after being gone too long. UK's First Lady of Musical Theatre, Elaine Paige, graced Broadway for only the second time in her career as the fearless "Carlotta Campion" in Follies. And, music icon Alicia Keyes fully initiated herself as the newest A-lister on the block.

IN THE SPOTLIGHT - The Women of 2011 shines the light on the ladies onstage and off that made magic this year.
