If you ever get a chance to see him on stage, go! He's awesome on stage. His singing and dancing is amazing, and it's a show where gets to interact with the audience, it's hysterical. He'll make a whole production over an audience member turning up late, or go into the audience to pick someone to dance with but he'll pick the bored-looking husband instead of the wife begging to go up on stage with him. The last time I saw The Boy From Oz,
a stagehand snuck out on stage to clean up some broken glass - Hugh stopped the show, introduced the stagehand, and then took the broom and tried to clean it up himself.
is my favorite musical, I've seen it on stage nine times. Didn't matter, the movie still left me sobbing by the end...
