Take her name off the marquee — New York's sweetheart is heading to La La Land!

It's been confirmed that ABC Family has picked up the Sutton Foster–led drama Bunheads, created by Gilmore Girls creator Amy Sherman Palladino. The show will feature Sutton as a former Las Vegas showgirl named Delores Van-Cartier who leaves the glitz of the strip to work as her her mother-in-law's small-town dance studio.

As this marks Sutton's first major stint on television, we're nothing but happy for her, but we're sure the bright lights of Broadway are going to miss her terribly!

Enjoy this girl — but come back to the Great White Way soon!!

    This is the kind of talent that Hollywood should be full of. Sutton can dance, sing AND act. She has REAL talent and deserves every part she gets. We need more of this in Hollywood and not this no-talent Kardashian/Teen Mom/Dance Moms/Housewives of ______ crap that is taking over television.

    Sutton is such an incredible talent and deserves more national/international exposure. She'll be missed on Broadway.. but like Chenowith, she'll be back. Go see her in ANYTHING GOES while you can… this is a performance people will be talking about 50 years from now!
