Hugh Jackman is no stranger to musicals. He made his acting debut not through playing Wolverine in the 2000 film X-Men (which he once described as being "lonely"), but through stage musicals such as Beauty and the Beast and Sunset Boulevard in the 1990s. Well, his stage musical appreciation continued when he gave a shout-out to the cast of Dear Evan Hansen, who responded with a sentimental tribute to him.
Dear Evan Hansen, which is considered to be the longest-running musical show to take place at the Music Box Theatre in New York, will have its final Broadway performance on September 18th. He was fortunate to be able to see it during its run, and he wrote to the cast on Instagram, sending huge thanks and love to the extraordinary cast of @dearevanhansen. They decided to share a photo of themselves wearing Evans' signature cast with names written on them.
The role of Jackman in the 2012 musical film Les Miserables, which featured him doing impromptu singing alongside his costars, was born. He embodied the dreamer who wanted to please audiences with his unique star attractions.
Hugh Jackman reintroduced himself to his musical stage roots last year when he honed his tap-dancing skills and received a warm reception. He said he would support a Greatest Showman sequel if the chance arises!
Ben Platt returned to the emotional part that he played in his Broadway career last year, and they praised the performances, but they felt that the Tony award-winning musical did not perform well on the big screen under Stephen Chbosky's direction. Maybe Hugh Jackman can recreate that film for us in a few years.
