Broadway Cares put the pair of tickets up for auction on Sept. 2. As of 4 PM Sept. 7, the bidding has climbed to $2,650. The two seats are in the front row and the eBay package comes complete with two passes to the post-show cast-party and a poster from the show signed by Jackman and the entire cast. Also, ensemble member Matt Stocke will be the top bidder's host at the party.

Since the item went up for auction, 13 bids have been placed.

Hugh Jackman won the Tony Award for his portrayal of Peter Allen in The Boy From Oz. The show was not well-reviewed, but Jackman was praised and the actor quickly became a popular attraction, drawing record crowds to the musical.
