Hugh Jackman, the supremely talented Australian actor showed his excitement and appreciation for the history of Broadway with how he opened the 2014 Tony Award ceremonies as its host at the Radio City Music Hall in New York City.

The muscular actor during the first five minutes of the Broadway show hopped up and down and had many viewers and those in the audience wondering why he was acting in such a manner but for those who are very knowledgeable about Broadway they immediately realized that he was paying homage to a film from the 1950s. His hopping around was very reminiscent of the performance of actor Bobby Van who performed "Take Me to Broadway" in the 1953 movie "Small Town Girl". 
 
The movie served as inspiration for Jackman to hop, skip and jump from the red carpet through the backstage and then onstage at which point he sang the song "I Love the Tonys".

No one can ever say he does not love the stage as it is apparent that he devoted considerable time researching the 1950s musicals in an effort to pay respect to those who had come before him.
 
He brought back the song "The Music Man" for his opening number but true to his creative self he performed it as a rap song. However he did not stop there concerning rap music as he then drew on the talents of hip-hop artists LL Cool J and TI for a performance of "Rock Island" which while unconventional definitely got the viewers talking throughout social media. 
 
Some viewers loved his opening act, some did not and some were left confused but Hugh Jackman definitely captured the attention of the Tony audience and television viewers and provided a performance that had everyone talking and that was very likely his intent. 
 
Hugh Jackman, a talented actor and award ceremony host who is never boring as he showed at the 2014 Tony Awards.
