In reply to: HUGH JACKMAN WILL STAR AS "PROFESSOR" HAROLD HILL IN “THE MUSIC MAN” ON BROADWAY - Official_Press_Release 09:47 am EDT 03/13/19

This smacks of overkill: "what is widely agreed is the greatest role ever created for an actor in the history of the musical theater: Professor Harold Hill"

Maybe "arguably the greatest role" but I don't even buy that. There's Sweeney Todd, Tevye, Don Quixote, Henry Higgins, George in Sunday/Park, Albin, Jelly Roll Morton which to my view all demand a heavier lift emotionally with a wider range of colors while still having as much stage time and requiring as much or more energy as does H. Hill. I'm sure there are other examples, those just sprang to mind.
