Lively looked elegant in a purple suit. She accessorized it with a pair of eye-catching earrings and turquoise rings. The actress, 34, posed with her older sister Robyn, Teen Witch actor, and Deborra Lee Furness, Jackman's wife. Reynolds, 45, posed alongside Furness and Shawn Levy. Although Reynolds and Lively didn't walk together on the red carpet, Reynolds was photographed arriving at the musical.
Opening night of The Music Man saw Anne Hathaway, his Les Miserables star, along with Andy Cohen, Mariska Hargitay and Seth Meyers, among others.
Jackman, 53 years old, and Reynolds have been friends for many years. They often played trolling one another on Facebook. Jackman called SiriusXM's the Jess Cagle Show in August 2020 to wish Lively a happy Birthday and to make a joke about Reynolds's relationship.
"I love her. Let me be very clear. He said that Blake was amazing. I don't know how it happened but she is still flawless. It's amazing to think about all the things she has endured. Let's just say COVID with Ryan. It's amazing. It's amazing.
Julia Cunningham, Cagle's cohost, joked about Lively's situation in Beauty and the Beast, "where she's trapped" with her husband. Jackman replied, "Yeah but not the Beauty and the Beast, where it turns out that they're a really good guys at the end."
