Forced break on Broadway for Hugh Jackman
For Hugh Jackman, the infection means a career break. The Australian is currently on stage on Broadway in the musical “The Music Man”. Jackman was nominated for a Tony Award for his leading role. At the ceremony on Sunday, he sang a number from the play on stage.
Now Jackman’s stand-in Max Clayton is taking over. The Hollywood star uses his Instagram post to celebrate his “incredibly talented” understudy – and the entire profession. “Maxi and all the other jumpers and underlings around the world, you are the true heroes of the theater,” writes Jackman. “You give real meaning to the saying ‘The Show Must Go On'”.
