Prepare to spend your summer falling in love with Sutton as a plucky Vegas showgirl awkwardly dancing her way through life. 2012 is shaping up to be a heck of a year for Broadway vets-turned-tv stars. Megan Hilty wowed us on Smash, Andrew Rannells is garnering buzz for The New Normal, and this summer, Sutton Foster will make her leading-lady debut as the star of ABC Family's Bunheads. I check out the first episode of the dance-themed drama, premiering June 11 at 9 p.m., and trust me — you'll want to check it out. Bunheads tells the story of Michelle, a down-on-her-luck showgirl who elopes with a travelling creeper and moves into the coastal home he shares with his dance-instructor mom. If the plot of Bunheads sounds ridiculous to you, congratulations, you're officially a sane human being. But somehow, in the midst of all the madness, some very real — and more importantly likable — characters emerge. »
