Broadway’s reprise of The Music Man , New York’s most popular show, was shut down for five days on Tuesday after lead actor Hugh Jackman tested positive for corona.
Jackman said on Twitter that he has only mild symptoms, including a sore throat and runny nose, and will return to the stage once he is healed. The producers have announced that all performances of the musical have been canceled until January 1.
Despite his vaccinations and booster shot, Jackman tested positive after his co-star Sutton Foster was infected with the corona virus last week. Foster, who was replaced by a substitute, will return to the stage on January 2, but Jackson is expected to be absent until January 6.
