In the CBS Sunday Morning profile, the Tony winner also danced with host Jane Pauley and spoke about the recent death of his father.

Tony winner Hugh Jackman, who announced December 28 that he had tested positive for COVID-19, was profiled on CBS Sunday Morning January 2. In the interview, filmed prior to Jackman's December 28 announcement, the stage and screen star spoke about returning to Broadway as Professor Harold Hill in the Tony-winning Meredith Willson musical The Music Man, his early desire to perform on stage, and the recent loss of his father, who had been diagnosed with Alzheimer's.

Watch the interview, which also features a dance with host Jane Pauley, above.

As previously reported, Jackman will return to his role as Hill January 6 at the Winter Garden Theatre. The Jackman- and Sutton Foster-led production, which had previously canceled performances through January 1, will now resume performances when Jackman does on January 6.

Jackman and Foster are joined by fellow Tony winners Shuler Hensley as Marcellus Washburn, Jefferson Mays as Mayor Shinn, Jayne Houdyshell as Mrs. Shinn, and Marie Mullen as Mrs. Paroo.
