The limited engagement, presented by David Mirvish, is scheduled for July 5-17 with a media night July 6.

Backed by an 18-piece orchestra, Tony Award winner Jackman performs a personal selection of his favorite musical numbers, including tunes from his Tony-winning turn in The Boy from Oz

“I have always loved performing live on stage,” Jackman said in a statement. “Toronto was where I shot my first American film, 'X-Men,' and has great memories for me for lots of reasons. I can't wait to go back and spend some time there again."

Warren Carlyle is the creative producer for Hugh Jackman in Concert, and Patrick Vaccariello serves as music supervisor and musical director. The creative team also includes lighting designer Ken Billington; scenic consultant John Lee Beatty; projection/video designer Alexander V. Nichols; and sound designer John Shivers.

Robert Fox produces.
