“No shower after this one,” Hugh shared to Variety after the show, which had no costume changes for him.

He added, “My character, and the whole play, is about trying to surrender to the moment and be present, and that’s really hard. Sometimes it’s easier to sing and dance and sweat.”

    I believe in getting into your work, but really.

    Isn’t it just a joking way of saying that he usually does musicals where he needs to sing and dance but this play he doesn’t move around that much so he doesn’t break a sweat and doesn’t need to shower after? Obviously he showers every day and wouldn’t stop.

    I meant to respond to you but didn’t. I think he’s just saying that usually he does very physical roles where he sweats a lot but for this role, he doesn’t need to shower after because he doesn’t move around a whole lot and doesn’t break a sweat.

    For some people it’s really hard to understand a joke, unfortunately need a quick smartness.

  • Go Hugh

    Hugh Jackman is the best actor with a wide range. I hope he wins aTony for his performance in Rivers.
