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...
I ditto that fact, if you ever have a chance to see Hugh on stage. The charisma just oozes out of him (see the quotes in my sig LOL).
Too bad Daniel Day-Lewis and Lincoln
came out this year because I totally believe he would win that Oscar for Les Mis (he did win a Golden Globe for it).
