Sutton Foster in Young Frankenstein

Postby saffymatt » Wed Dec 12, 2007 8:16 pm

Was checking out Entertainment Weekly online a while ago and came across this article about Young Frankenstein. But what really caught my attention was the cute picture of Sutton Foster, aka Coco. The article wasn't overly flattering of the show, but it did say that she "yodels spectacularly". Who knew? :D

She yodels? And why is she yodelling in Young Frankenstein? I haven't seen it so you could say I know as much about this movie as 'Dave' does about Watership Down. I just don't see how Frankenstein and yodeling go together. :hrm:

Here's a YF performance clip with a bit of yodeling that was on the Today TV show :

Thanks for the link Jennifer. That's cleared up a lot for me.
She looks SO different as a blonde and I had no idea she could sing. Bizarre to see her not acting awkward and talking about signs. ;)

"... no idea she could sing" ?

She's won a Tony award as Best Actress in a Musical! Here's a bit of a bio:

Seeing her in FoTC was a great reminder of the truly talented people Bret and Jemaine can draw into their projects. On the one hand, I wish they'd given her more to do; on the other, it was a bit of a laugh to see this well-known singing, dancing dynamo play such a quiet character.

I never would have thought that she could be an all singing, all dancing kind of person. Just goes to show how rubbish I am at finding out about people.
