Sonia Friedman Productions presents the limited engagement that officially opened Nov. 16. Performances were originally 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, again directs.

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, "On a moonless evening, a man brings his new girlfriend to a remote cabin for a night of trout-fishing. But before the night is over, it becomes clear that nothing is as it seems... and as memory collides with desire, the truth becomes the most elusive catch of all."

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