Yesterday, January 15, 2023, The Music Man took its final bow at the Winter Garden Theatre following 46 previews and 373 regular performances. During the final curtain call, Jackman thanked the audience, the understudies and swings, everyone working behind the scenes at the Winter Garden Theatre, and more. BroadwayWorld was there for the big night and you can check out photos below!

The revival of Meredith Willson's musical starred two-time Tony Award, Grammy Award, and Emmy Award-winning star Hugh Jackman as Professor Harold Hill and two-time Tony Award winner Sutton Foster as Marian Paroo. Over the course of its run, the production shattered the Winter Garden Theatre's previous weekly box office record a total of 48 times and played to 487K audience members from around the globe.

One of the most universally cherished treasures of the American musical theater, The Music Man was an instant smash hit when it premiered on Broadway on December 19, 1957. It went on to win five Tony Awards, including the prize for Best Musical, and ran for 1,375 performances. The Smithsonian Institution ranks The Music Man as one of the "great glories of American popular culture."
