Hugh certainly looked fit and fabulous as he chatted with fans at the Midtown venue before waving to passers-by as he entered.

In an interview with Vogue earlier last month, the Wolverine star revealed his years-long dream of starring in the hit Broadway musical.

‘I woke up and I was literally like, ‘Why didn’t I do The Music Man? And so I called my agent, and he just got a call that day about it,” he said.

“And so it felt like it was meant to be…Now I’m a little mad at myself for putting it off for so long.”

The Music Man follows Harold Hill, played by Hugh, a con artist who sells musical instruments to naive townspeople with the promise of teaching them how to play.

He then plans to leave town without keeping his promise, but not before being surprised by a piano teacher named Marian.

Meanwhile, Hugh recently shared a family recipe that his mother, Grace McNeil, passed down to him.

On the menu of the day: chickpea burgers. Thanks Mom!’ he wrote, adding a photo of a platter of chickpea patties in front of a handwritten recipe.

The Wolverine star has spoken candidly about his sometimes strained relationship with his mother in the past.

In an interview with The Australian Women’s Weekly in October 2012, Hugh revealed he was only eight years old when his British mother returned to England.

She left him and his four siblings with their father, Christopher Jackman, in Sydney, and Hugh admitted it took him years to come to terms with it.
