Hugh Jackman contracted a coronavirus

Broadway’s musical The Music Man, New York’s hottest show, canceled its performances for five days after its protagonist, Hugh Jackman, tested positive for Covid-19.

Jackman said on Twitter that he has only mild symptoms such as sore throat and runny nose and that once he recovers he will be back on stage.

The producers announced that all the performances of the following days are postponed.

Jackman tested positive after his co-star, Sutton Foster, also fell ill last week and was replaced in the shows. Foster will return on January 2 but Jackman will be out of the theater until January 6.

Dozens of Broadway shows, including “Hamilton,” “The Lion King” and “Aladdin,” have been canceled over the past 15 days due to coronary heart disease, although the actors, staff and spectators have all been vaccinated. Some performances, such as the Rockettes’ annual Christmas show at Radio City Music Hall, were canceled altogether, while other musicals were canceled a few weeks ago due to a combination of many incidents and few tickets.

The new wave could not come at a worse time for Broadway, whose theaters only reopened in September after being closed for 18 months due to the pandemic.

The official premiere of Music Man is scheduled for February 10. Ticket demand is high, although the price at official points of sale is as high as $ 699 and on reseller sites it can be as high as $ 2,000 each.
