TV Star Hugh Sheridan Reveals His Castmate And Brother 'Glassed In The Street'

Popular Australian actor Hugh Sheridan has revealed on Instagram that his 'Hair' castmate Matthew Manahan, as well as his brother were allegedly attacked in Perth overnight.

In a post on Instagram on Saturday morning, Sheridan wrote, "Tonight this kind soul pictured here with me was attacked for no reason, he was glassed in the street. Minutes later my beautiful brother was attacked by the same person just after leaving the theatre with me. I’ve just got back from the police station in North Bridge."

Sheridan and Matthew Manahan star together in the hit musical 'Hair'. Sheridan plays the lead, alongside Paulini of Australian Idol fame, Prinnie Stevens, with Manahan playing the role of Claude.

With performances of the musical due to take place later today according to Ticketek, Sheridan added "I don’t know what will happen for opening night tomorrow, Matt is still in hospital and my understanding is he’s still awaiting a cat scan, I thought it’s better to let you know now before I try and sleep so if you’re coming tomorrow you have a chance to get information."

"We will endeavor to run the show as planned as long as it is safe to do so, the show goes on always, with added meaning and reason, can’t actually believe tonight happened."

'Hair' is currently on at Her Majesty's Theatre in Perth until September 1st and will continue to run in Geelong, Wyong, Wollongong, Sydney and the Gold Coast until October.
