Jackman was currently starring in Broadway’s The Music Man and will be absent from the series until at least Wednesday, June 22. Max Clayton will take on the series lead role for all screenings until then.

“I wanted you to hear it from me first. This morning I tested positive for COVID again in frustration,” Jackman shared in a video. “My amazing standby, Max Clayton, will continue for me. Max and I have worked together on this show for over two years and I can say to be in the room with him, he’s absolutely amazing. I’m just frustrated, I won’t be able to see him and cheer him on, and I will cheer him on in my heart. The music manI hate not being here with you, but I’ll be back as soon as possible.”

So just wanted you to hear it from me. Please stay safe, be healthy, be kind.
