Earlier, Jackman's The Music Man co-star Sutton Foster had contracted the virus, and it was announced that all performances would be cancelled until Saturday, January 1.
The revival show was expected to open in September 2020 before the pandemic. The preview shows of the musical began on December 20 but had to cancel its December 25 performance and December 26 matinee citing COVID breakthrough cases.
