What a brush with stardom this is!
The Clam Shack seafood takeout restaurant has been in business in Kennebunk since 1968 and has become known nationwide for its excellent lobster rolls, getting recognition in People Magazine, CNN, The New York Times and the Today Show.
Mainers are very proud of their seafood and people will travel from all over the country to come to get a taste, and there are many times that celebrities have been spotted here in Maine stopping at one of the many great locations to get fresh Maine lobster.
But some of those celebrities are a bit too busy to make the trip to Maine to get a lobster roll, so The Clam Shack was invited to Broadway to feed the cast and crew of The Music Man lobster rolls and chowder between shows.
If you know your Broadway musicals, you know that Hugh Jackman is starring in the revival of The Music Man that began in February. He's a busy dude with a regular theater schedule and getting ready to make a return as Wolverine in Deadpool 3.
Jackman was kind enough to stop for a picture with the folks from the Clam Shack as the wheeled boxes full of lobster rolls and chowder right down Broadway and into the Winter Garden Performing Arts Theater on National Lobster Day.
Being on the safe side, Jackman was wearing a mask, but even with it on, you can clearly tell it's him.
What a day to remember for all the great people from the Clam Shack!
