I did not see it but I thought that Sutton was great in the off-Broadway production of Sweet Charity, which is close to as big a dancing role there is.  I thought that she received excellent reviews.  Am I misinformed?

Jarethan, I didn't mean to come off as cranky - though I am kind of cranky lately for other reasons.

And I get what you are saying about Sutton and that you see Ariana and Adrienne as more accomplished dancers.

My point wasn't to contradict you.  It was that by your standards, reasoned as they might be, when we think of the major Broadway musical leading ladies of Foster's generation, few if any of them WOULD be dancers.
