HUGH JACKMAN, BACK ON BROADWAY BEGINS PERFORMANCES TONIGHT
Performances begin tonight at 7 PM for Hugh Jackman, Back on Broadway at the Broadhurst Theatre (235 West 44th Street). Tony Award-winner Hugh Jackman returns to the New York stage for a 10-week engagement in Hugh Jackman, Back on Broadway. Opening night is November 10; the production runs through January 1, 2012.
Accompanied by an 18-piece orchestra, Hugh Jackman will perform a personal selection of his favorite musical numbers that reflect on the stage and film star’s remarkable life and career, from The Boy from Oz to Hollywood.
Hugh Jackman, Back on Broadway follows recent sold-out runs in San Francisco and Toronto. Scott Weigand in the San Francisco Chronicle said “Jackman is a dazzling singer and dancer. It’s not that they don’t make ‘em like Hugh Jackman anymore – they never did.”
In the Toronto Star, Richard Ouzounian said, “It almost seems illegal that a man this good-looking and charming should be able to sing and act with such skill. What makes Jackman and his show so spectacular is one word: talent. The man is an absolute wow.”
The creative team for Hugh Jackman, Back on Broadway includes Warren Carlyle (Direction and Choreography), Patrick Vaccariello (Musical Direction), John Lee Beatty (Scenic Designer), Ken Billington (Lighting Design), William Ivey Long (Costume Designer), John Shivers (Sound Design), and Alexander V. Nichols (Projection and Video Design). Hugh Jackman, Back on Broadway is produced by Robert Fox and The Shubert Organization.
