Sutton Foster as Michelle Simms
Michelle had a promising career as a classically-trained professional dancer but was drawn to the lights of Las Vegas. Now, with a dead-end job as a 30-something showgirl, she’s found the excitement of Sin City has lost its appeal, and her persistent suitor, Hubbell Flowers, is gaining it. With promises of a cushy life in his coastal town of Paradise, CA., Hubbell convinces Michelle to marry him and move away. Once in Paradise, Michelle discovers that Hubbell forgot to mention that he lives with his mother, the strong-headed, imperious Fanny Flowers who is not pleased that Hubbell has run off and married a stranger. But Michelle’s budding relationship with the “bunheads” at Fanny’s dance studio may help her adapt to small town living and her uneasy role as a new daughter-in-law.
