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, will return to The Great White Way in his solo show, Hugh Jackman, Back on Broadway beginning Oct. 25.



In a statement Jackman said, "I can't believe it's been seven years since I was singing and dancing on Broadway. There is nothing like performing on the Great White Way and I'm so excited to be coming 'home.'"

The Broadway engagement, which features an 18-piece orchestra, follows limited runs in Toronto and San Francisco.

Here is a look at the afternoon meet and greet:
