Where does the Music Man kick up his feet after-hours?

Actor Hugh Jackman, now starring in Broadway’s “The Music Man,” has shelled out a cool $22.1 million for a penthouse in Manhattan’s Chelsea neighborhood only two months after listing his West Village condo for a whopping $38.9 million, The Post can confirm. That latter downtown property still remains for sale.

Jackman, 53, closed on the new residence inside a glassy tower designed by Pritzker Prize-winning architect Jean Nouvel — who also designed the jaw-dropping Louvre in Abu Dhabi — on Aug. 1, according to StreetEasy.

The Wall Street Journal was the first to report the transaction.

The unit last traded hands in 2012 for $19.4 million.

Made up of three bedrooms and 3½ bathrooms, the penthouse offers panoramic views of the Hudson River, and the downtown and midtown skylines.

Spanning 4,675 square feet, the full-floor residence also features 14-foot-high floor-to-ceiling windows.

Features include a library, which can be made into a fourth bedroom, an elevator that opens directly into the home, a eat-in kitchen and a breakfast bar.

The primary suite at the end of the residence has been pegged as a “retreat from city life,” complete with an expansive dressing room and a six-fixture bathroom, according to the previous listing.

All the other bedrooms stand on the opposite end of the condo.

Outdoor features include an expansive loggia and a separate terrace located on the main floor.

Upstairs is a roof terrace completed with a deck, an outdoor kitchen and views of the Hudson River.
