On July 1st, the Qatar-America Institute hosted a group of DC-area professionals to see Hugh Jackman: The Man. The Music. The Show. at the Capital One Arena. The guests were friends and family of a couple that purchased the tickets at auction at the Boys and Girls Club of Greater Washington‘s annual BlueFest fundraiser.
The show featured music from across Jackman’s career in film and theatre, with stunning dancers and elaborate costumes and sets.
Jackman used the platform of the concert to highlight the music of indigenous people of his native Australia and to celebrate the impressive talent of his local Washingtonian dancers.
Guests enjoyed the thrilling show and discussed the multiple facets of the Qatari-American relationship in fashion, defense, and business.
