In an Instagram post, Hugh wrote: “I’ve frustratingly tested positive for Covid. Again. My standby, the amazingly talented @maxmclayton will step in for me.

What irritates me the most is that I won’t be able to witness him perform! I’ve said it a million times before, and I’ll say it again… You are the genuine heroes of theatre, Maxi and all the standbys, swings, and understudies around the world.

Hugh 53, has been fully immunised and has received a booster dose. Producer Kate Horton wished Jackman a speedy recovery in a statement to The Hollywood Reporter.

Once again, standbys and understudies come to the rescue, and this time it’s Max Clayton. “We’re looking forward to seeing him perform with Sutton Foster, and we wish Hugh a swift recovery,” Horton said.

Jackman first tested positive for COVID-19 in December 2021, a week after Foster was diagnosed with the virus, and was forced to cancel performances of “The Music Man” as a result.

Hugh first tested positive for COVID-19 back in December 2021, again forcing him to step back from the Broadway show before making a return in January.

In a video outside the Winter Garden Theatre the following month as he announced his return, the ‘Greatest Showman’ actor said: “I can’t tell you how good this moment feels.

“Yes, we’re back. To all those people who had tickets for the last 10 days, I’m so sorry.

“I hope, I pray, that you’ll have a chance to reschedule, but… I’m so excited to be back and to bring this show — which is just pure joy and full of hope and belief and faith — back to Broadway.”
