“It’s a moment we’ve never known. This is our fourth glimpse, we’re all learning, so the swings and liners haven’t had a chance to learn,” he said. Jackman said. “They watch from the corner of a room as we rehearse, as we practice over and over again. They watch and write notes, then five hours before the performance, they are told, ‘You’re on the way, you’re on the way, you’re on the way. have a wig fitting, go for it! ‘ “
Jackman asked other understudies to join him on stage as he spoke.
“I’m emotional because it humiliates me,” he continued. “Their courage, their brilliance, their dedication, their talent. The swings, the liners, they are the foundation of Broadway.”
Foster revealed on her Instagram Stories on Friday that she had tested positive for Covid-19. She praised Voytko saying she “broke” her performance.
“Grateful to all the swings and liners that keep all the shows going, now and always,” Foster concluded in his post. “And Hugh Jackman… you are a class act. Get tested, get vaccinated, get boosted! Stay safe and healthy everyone.”
