It was the theater announcement heard ’round the world: Sutton Foster—who previously graced the stage in shows like Anything Goes and Violet—would be making her return to Broadway to play Marian the Librarian in The Music Man opposite Mr. Theater himself: Hugh Jackman.
PureWow had the chance to chat exclusively with Foster via her partnership with Lactaid (which she swears by as a lactose-free real milk alternative), so we had to ask: What was her reaction to hearing the news that she’d be sharing the stage with Jackman?
“Well, there was this one moment where I woke up in the middle of the night and was thinking to myself, ‘Oh my gosh, I’m going to have to kiss Hugh Jackman!’” she laughs. “I never thought that would happen in my life!”
Still, the part she’s most looking forward to is simply being in the same room as someone she respects so much. “Hugh is the real deal. I love that he loves theater, and I love that he’s made this an essential part of his career. That’s something I admire a lot,” she says.
