NEW YORK (AP) - One of Broadway's biggest stars is coming back: Sutton Foster.

The Roundabout Theatre Company said Monday that the two-time Tony Award winner will star in the musical "Violet" directed by Leigh Silverman. Previews begin in March with an opening slated for April 20 at the American Airlines Theatre.

The show features music by Jeanine Tesori and a book and lyrics by Brian Crawley. It's based on the short story "The Ugliest Pilgrim" by Doris Betts, which tells the tale of a disfigured woman's journey to feel beautiful again.

It played off-Broadway at Playwrights Horizons in 1997.

Foster has won Tonys for "Anything Goes" and "Thoroughly Modern Millie." Her other credits include "The Drowsy Chaperone" and "Young Frankenstein." She most recently moved to California to star in the cable series "Bunheads."
