Her first Astaire was for “Thoroughly Modern Millie”. Desmond Richardson, Tony nominee for “Fosse” and  co-founder and co-artistic director of Complexions Contemporary Ballet presented the award to Ms. Sutton. First timer Norbert Leo Butz star of “Catch Me if You Can” took the prize for Best Male Dancer on Broadway presented by Tony and Drama Desk winner Karen Ziemba . Australia’s Graeme Murphy and Janet Vernon won the Astaire forExcellence in Choreography in Film for their breathtaking dances in “Mao’s Last Dancer” presented by Tony Award winner Bill Irwin. Legendary dancer, choreographer, teacher and founder of the National Dance Institute Jacques d’Amboisereceived the Douglas Watt Lifetime Achievement Award named for the late drama critic and co-founder of the Award with Fred Astaire.

The first Adele Astaire Scholarship went to 17 year old former “Billy Elliot” star Corey Snide who was accepted to Julliard this fall. Introducing him, Joe Lanteri, Executive Director NYC Dance Alliance noted, “As Ava Astaire mentioned earlier, together we’ve established a new scholarship, an award that bears the name of ‘Adele Astaire’….that will be given for the first time ever tonight… to a young man I first met when he was nine years old and training in a local studio in Albany. He has grown up through the NYC Dance Alliance. He’s now 17 and was just accepted to the Juilliard School for the fall of 2011.  This is someone we will all be keeping an eye on, for years to come”. Snide than whipped into a fast paced tap solo after which another famous tapper Maurice Hines presented him with the scholarship.

Fittingly, the evening which focused on developing young talent ended with a roof raising performance “Stomp To My Beat” by the young students of David Sanders Dynamic Dance Company that brought the audience to its feet.

Following the awards presentation, guests moved upstairs for a post show dinner with the stars in the atrium like grand room with sweeping views of the city -  location Fred & Adele would have felt right at home in.

Broadway Review: ANYTHING GOES

If you had the opportunity to do something that would make you smile for 2 hours and forty-five minutes, you’d do it wouldn’t you? Then get to the Stephen Sondheim Theatre on Broadway for the Roundabout Theatre Company’s production of Anything Goes starring Sutton Foster and Joel Grey.

While neither of the aforementioned might ordinarily be considered for the roles of Reno Sweeney and Moonface Martin respectively, these two could sell ice to Eskimos. They sell these characters and their songs with such utter joy, you can’t help but love it.

ALL ABOARD for this saucy and splendid new production of Cole Porter’s musical romp across the Atlantic.  When the S.S. American heads out to sea, etiquette and convention head out the portholes as two unlikely pairs set off on the course to true love… proving that sometimes destiny needs a little help from a crew of singing sailors, an exotic disguise and some good old-fashioned blackmail. Peppering this hilariously bumpy ride are some of musical theater’s most memorable standards, including “You're the Top,” “Blow, Gabriel, Blow,” “It’s De-Lovely,” “I Get A Kick Out of You,” and “Anything Goes.”
