Hugh Jackman Announces Covid-19 Diagnosis

We got trouble, my friends, right here in New York City. It’s trouble with a capital T and that rhymes with C, and that stands for … Covid.

Hugh Jackman took to social media on Tuesday (Dec 28) and announced that he has tested positive for the coronavirus. It was later reported that the Broadway revival of The Music Man has canceled several performances due to the recent spike brought on by the more-contagious but potentially less dangerous Omicron variant.

“I just wanted you to hear it from me,” a masked Jackman told his fans and followers, “I tested positive this morning for covid. My symptoms are like a cold … but I’m fine,” he said, adding he had a sore throat and runny nose.

The Music Man is set to resume on January 2. While Jackman is reportedly expected back on stage in the role of Professor Harold Hill on January 6.

The Music Man cast began their preview performances on Dec. 20. The show will officially open at the Winter Garden Theatre on Feb. 10, 2022.

All of us at Fandom Spotlite wish Jackman and Sutton Foster a full and speedy recovery.
