Hugh Jackman‘s musical revival is being pushed back even further.
The Music Man, starring the 51-year-old actor, has set a new opening night for 2022 amid theater opening date pushbacks due to the pandemic, via Deadline on Friday (October 9).
“The highly anticipated musical revival, costarring Sutton Foster, now will begin previews at Broadway’s Winter Garden Theatre on Monday, December 20, 2021, with Opening Night scheduled for Thursday, February 10, 2022,” the outlet reports.
“The announcement marks the first confirmed rescheduling following today’s decision by the Broadway League to extend Broadway’s coronavirus pandemic shutdown from the previous January 2021 to May 30 2021.”
In The Music Man, Hugh will play Professor Harold Hill in the Meredith Willson musical, with Sutton as Marian Paroo.
