As the new Broadway season gets underway, Playbill.com presents a first look at the artwork that will adorn the Playbill covers for each new show.  First up: two anticipated productions that both kick off Sept. 10.

At the Gerald Schoenfeld Theatre, John Crowley directs film stars Hugh Jackman, a Tony winner for The Boy From Oz, and Daniel Craig in Keith Huff's two-character play A Steady Rain.  The production, which runs for only 12 weeks, concerns two Chicago cops who find their loyalties tested as a routine domestic disturbance call sends them on a harrowing journey.
