I’ll pre-light it for her. She can drive up, run in, shoot it, and run out. I can get her in and out in two hours. If she finds that time, I don’t care when it is, we will make it happen.” PLUS: Sutton Foster will sing on Gilmore Girls revival as part of a musical film written by Fun Home‘s Tony-winning composer.
