Tony Awards poll: Rate Hugh Jackman’s bouncy opening number (Video)

Hugh Jackman returned to host the Tony Awards for the first time since 2005 with a show-stopping opening number that showcased his physical prowess and stamina.  

Inspired by Bobby Van‘s scene-stealing number in the 1953 MGM musical “Small Town Girl,” Jackman bounced his way from 53rd Street, through the labyrinth of Radio City Music Hall, encountering the likes of a steely-faced Clint Eastwood and four-time past host (and current nominee) Neil Patrick Harris, before making his way onstage to sing a few bars of “Take Me to Broadway,” which Van crooned later in the picture.
