Tony Award winner Hugh Jackman is back on Broadway! The singing actor opens in Jez Butterworth's The River Nov. 16 at Circle in the Square. We look at his onstage career thus far!

Hugh Jackman, who won a Tony Award for his Broadway debut in The Boy from Oz and was later seen opposite Daniel Craig in A Steady Rain, returned to The Great White Way in Hugh Jackman, Back on Broadway. He received a special Tony award for that performance.

He is also known for his film roles in the "X-Men" trilogy, "Someone Like You," "Swordfish," "Kate and Leopold," "Van Helsing," "The Fountain" and "Happy Feet" (in voice). His stage credits also include Trevor Nunn's staging of Oklahoma! at Britian's National Theatre and award-winning work in productions of Sunset Boulevard and Beauty and the Beast in his homeland.

* Sonia Friedman Productions presents the limited 13-week engagement, currently scheduled through Jan. 25, 2015. The play had its premiere in 2012 at the Royal Court Theatre.

Ian Rickson (Jerusalem), who helmed the London premiere of the play, directs.

Tony winner Jackman (The Boy from Oz, A Steady Rain, "Les Misérables") is joined by original London cast member Laura Donnelly and Cush Jumbo, who was seen in the all-female version of Julius Caesar at St. Ann's Warehouse last fall.

According to producers, "A remote cabin on the cliffs, a man and a woman, and a moonless night. Jez Butterworth’s The River asks when we find each other, are we trying to recapture someone we once lost? The writer director team who brought you Jerusalem returns with a bewitching new story."

The River has production design by Ultz, with lighting by Charles Balfour, sound by Ian Dickinson for Autograph and music by Stephen Warbeck.
