"I love you. I love Broadway. And I love what they do, Broadway Cares, but I also want to say that this show is extraordinary," Kidman said, taking the mic after taking the stage at the Winter Garden Theater approached.
“I have known Nic for almost 30 years. I have worked with her. I can tell you this is no surprise to me. She's one of the most generous souls I know," Jackman said. "You are a beautiful person. I love you. Many Thanks."
Kidman's shouted bid of $100,000 elicited an enthusiastic response from the crowd, prompting Jackman to quip, "I just want to clarify that these are not Australian dollars." (At current conversion rates, Kidman's bid is AUD 148,744 .) The "Music Man" cast raised funds for Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS after completing the final performances.

"MS. Kidman's remarkable support of Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS on Saturday night was wonderful to see and her extraordinary generosity is deeply appreciated by the entire Broadway community," said Kate Horton, producer of The Music Man, in a statement .
“Broadway Cares is blessed with friends across Broadway. But we don't have a greater champion than Hugh Jackman. This extraordinary gift from his friend Nicole Kidman is by far the largest donation to an auction item ever. That's 20,000 meals and 2,000 doctor visits this holiday season for people living with HIV/AIDS, battling COVID-19 or facing other life-threatening challenges," said Tom Viola, executive director of Broadway Cares. "Donations to The Music Man, throughout Broadway, Off-Broadway and to national touring productions will provide meals and medicine, health care and hope this holiday season."
Nicole Kidman's appearance comes days after she was recognized as a recipient of the American Film Institute's Lifetime Achievement Award. A gala tribute will be held on June 10 at the Dolby Theater in Los Angeles.

While Jackman and Kidman are two of Hollywood's most prominent Australian actors, the two friends have only worked together a handful of times. The pair led Baz Luhrmann's epic adventure Australia in 2008 and provided the voices of the penguin parents for the tap-dancing pariah Mumble in the 2006 animated feature film Happy Feet.
"The Music Man" was the biggest hit of the year on Broadway, generating $2 to $3 million a week in ticket sales. The show is expected to end on January 15, 2023.
