Sutton Foster and Norbert Leo Butz and choreographers Susan Stroman, Graeme Murphy and Janet Vernon scored 2011 Astaire Awards.
The 29th annual dance-centric kudos handed out four trophies, with Stroman, who picked up the stage choreo-graphy nod for “The Scottsboro Boys,” winning her fifth Astaire, a record.
Foster, star of “Anything Goes,” nabbed her second Astaire for Broadway dancing. Butz scored his for his turn in “Catch Me If You Can.”
Murphy and Vernon, co-choreographers of indie pic “Mao’s Last Dancer,” walked away with the laurel for movie choreography; film nominees had included “Black Swan.”
Ballet choreographer Jacques d’Amboise scored a previously announced lifetime achievement nod at the Monday, May 16, ceremony, hosted by Bebe Neuwirth and Lee Roy Reams.
