Hugh Jackman and Sutton Foster have a blast performing in Broadway’s The Music Man.

Jackman takes on the role of Harold Hill in the Tony-nominated show, while Foster stars as Marian Paroo.

The pair spoke to SiriusXM’s Jess Cagle for a special interview recorded live at New York City’s Winter Garden Theatre, home of The Music Man.

Cagle questioned whether the pair do anything on stage to break the other one.

Foster joked, “I would like to say that I am a rock,” as Jackson laughed, “And I am not. This one does genuinely make me laugh.”

He added of his character, “I rationalize that it’s Harold laughing and just finding her incredibly funny.

“She makes me laugh so much… and it’s so alive and funny and I think Harold finds her really funny,” adding that he thinks Harold is used to being the joker.
