Jackman wins Tony Award for Best Actor (Musical) for portraying Peter Allen in The Boy from Oz at the 58th Annual Tony Awards. Jackman spoke backstage about winning the award in the same venue where Allen performed.
Peter at the time was the biggest selling artist ever to play Radio City Music Hall and I had his dressing room. The whole thing was kind of spooky. To receive the award in Radio City was a fantastic twist of fate. I feel his spirit in the theatre eight times a week, but I definitely know he was there tonight.
