Hugh Jackman’s fabulous one-man show hit Toronto’s Scotiabank Arena last night and I was lucky enough to be there. The 15,000 other Torontonians in attendance with me, on his only Canadian stop, loved his awesome singing and dance moves. And one lucky member of the audience even got to join him.
Stepping off the stage to greet the audience, Jackman told an elderly woman named Pauline that her cane matched his outfit. Next thing you knew, he helped her to her feet and she danced some soft shoe beside him, which delighted everyone.
After their adorable moment, Hugh gave Pauline a big hug and it seemed like she didn’t want to let go of him. Who could blame her!
Fans Loved Hugh Jackman’s Video, Dancing With Pauline
Jackman posted a video with Pauline on his Twitter account and fans loved it.
“I love that Wolverine can sing, dance, and hug old ladies. You sir, are a true gentleman.” Another agreed: “Aww Hugh you’re the greatest i love to see you interacting with the audience.”
Another fan, who was at the Toronto show, said: “One of the best performances I’ve seen in ages, amazing talent, the show was non stop, mind blowing. Canada loves you Hugh, the audience was in awe of your talent, only happy faces leaving your concert tonight.”
Jackman talked about how much he loves Toronto and also gave a shout out to Canada, a fellow Commonwealth country.
I was lucky enough to also attend Jackman’s one-man show at the Princess of Wales Theatre in Toronto back in 2011. Although that show was fantastic, this one was even better. The production values and images that went along with it were top notch.
As with his previous show, this one also had non-stop singing and dancing. Jackman included tunes from The Greatest Showman, Les Miserables, his Peter Allen tribute (The Boy From Oz) and even some old classics like Singing In The Rain and Mack The Knife. Also included were some close-ups of Jackman shaking his booty – much appreciated by all the women in attendance.
I also made off with some awesome loot – a beautiful black t-shirt and a gorgeous program.
If you have the chance to go see his show, and you really should, do it! He’s still got stops left on the North American leg of his tour including Boston, New York, Philadelphia, Las Vegas and many other cities. After a short break, he’ll be bringing The Man. The Music. The Show to his homeland of Australia beginning August 2.
