Hugh Jackman began the New Year in isolation after testing positive to Covid-19.

But the actor looked fitter than ever on Monday as he stepped out in New York City ahead of a matinée performance of his Broadway show The Music Man.

The 53-year-old wore black pants and a matching hooded jacket, and kept himself warm during the winter chill with a navy windbreaker.

Upon his return to the show, he shared a positive message with fans on Instagram.

'All right, I can’t tell you how good this moment feels - yes, we’re back, we’re back,' said Hugh, who plays the role of Harold Hill in the famed musical.

The Aussie, who tested positive for Covid-19 on December 28, apologised to fans who had tickets to see the show when he was sidelined.

'To all those people who had tickets for the last 10 days I’m so sorry, I hope and pray that you have a chance to reschedule,' he said

 'I’m so excited to be back and to bring the show - which is pure joy and full of hope and belief and faith - back to Broadway.'

The Greatest Showman actor also had kind words for his colleagues as the Broadway community suffers during the Omicron wave. 

He said: 'To all the shows on Broadway, I’m thinking of you all, and everybody stay safe, be kind to each other and I’m looking forward to seeing you soon.' 

The Music Man was among the shows that had to cancel performances due to the spike in Covid-19 cases as previews kicked off December 20.
