Hugh Jackman: Losing 3 Pounds Every Night on Broadway

Hugh Jackman: Losing 3 Pounds Every Night on Broadway

Hugh Jackman heads to the gym for a post-Thanksgiving workout on Friday (November 25) in New York City.

The 43-year-old Aussie actor is currently starring in Hugh Jackman, Back on Broadway, a gig that is causing him to lose three or four pounds every night because of the dancing.

“We started a week ago. Already they’ve taken my pants in three times,” Hugh recently told NPR.

“He dances like Gene Kelly or Fred Astaire. He’s in that kind of category,” the show’s director and choreographer, Warren Carlyle explained. “He’s just like this great leading man who has rhythm and who can really, really move.”

Nobody, except Jackman, nowadays is able to do everything, acting, singing and dancing. He’s the only one who can keep up with the great actors of Hollywood’s golden era just go to his show and see it for yourself, and if people can’t go to the theater, anyone can have an idea reading the multitude of positive reviews, even the harshest critics agree.

I would like to know how to go about having Jackman make a DVD of this show — fans all over the world would be thrilled to have one!!!

They are still selling DVDs of his Oklahoma! show in London almost ten years ago.. He is the only actor out there today with so much talent..

@marymargret: Hugh is the consumate performer. He will be around a lot longer than most of his contemporaries. Love the guy

This guy has proven himself in every media. For a tall man, he knows he needs to be muscled to be so light on his feet. I am older than most of you, but every time I see a photo of this man, my body responds viserably. In other words he makes me _______________.

He is loking good!

@marymargaret: Pray that PBS tries to do the Great Performances thing. That’s about the only way it’ll happen.
