Hugh Jackman, Back on Broadway opened on November 10, 2011 to rave reviews:

{module ad_left_body}“The impossibly talented, impossibly energetic Mr. Jackman is a glorious dinosaur among live entertainers of the 21st century: an honest-to-gosh old-fashioned matinee idol who connects to his audiences without a hint of contempt for them or for himself. A movie star with a major action franchise, Mr. Jackman says he’s happiest as a song-and-dance man, the kind who conducts mass flirtation with a wink, a wriggle, a firmly handled melody and maybe a cane and some tap shoes.”

– Ben Brantley, The New York Times

“No matter your age, gender or sexual orientation, the Australian star will melt you into a puddle of blissed-out goo. It’s called mega-wattage charisma, and they don’t teach it in school. There’s a new king on Broadway. Long live His Royal Hughness!”

– Elisabeth Vincentelli, The New York Post

“There are movie stars, and there are all-around entertainers. On the evidence of Hugh Jackman, Back on Broadway, Hugh Jackman is definitely the latter. Not since Liza Minnelli have we seen such command of the stage and repertoire by a solo artist.”

– Thom Geier, Entertainment Weekly
