Broadway: More Trouble in River City as Hugh Jackman Tests Positive, “The Music Man” Cancels Again Til January 2nd
“The Music Man” just cancelled all performances from now through January 1st. They’ll try and return on January 2nd.
Hugh Jackman has tested positive– see his video below. Of course he got it. Star Sutton Foster and at least 8 other actors in the company have really gotten hit hard by COVID. What a shame. Losing the holiday season is very rough on the Broadway economy and psyche. Wishing everyone a speedy recovery!
Friends of mine saw the show on the 26th and loved it even with Sutton out. But so many cast members being sick means they’ve got to take the time to regroup and re-set!
Just wanted you to hear it from me. I tested positive for covid. Mild symptoms and as soon as I’m cleared … looking forward to getting back to The Winter Garden! @MusicManBway pic.twitter.com/q1oEAzXX02
