Co-star Sutton Foster added her own thanks – to Jackman saying in part “I’m sure you have a lot of choices out there. And you’re welcome back anytime.”
Jackman and Foster have given 419 performances since the curtain first rose on the revival in 2021.
Singer Shakira has set a new record on YouTube. Her diss track “Out of Your League” is the most-played Latin song in 24 hours on the platform.

The Colombian pop star and the now retired Barcelona defender Piqué announced their separation last year.
The track takes aim at Piqué and his alleged new relationship. Shakira sings: “I’m worth two 22-year-olds. You swapped a Ferrari for a Twingo. You swapped a Rolex for a Casio.”
Other Latin performers who have broken youtube records include J Balvin, Luis Fonsi, and Daddy Yankee.
