Bucket list moment! BROOADWAY TO OZ. pic.twitter.com/8rKmIVqpjN"This high-octane show takes audiences on a journey through Jackman’s life so far, from his early days in outback Australia to his vast musical theatre triumphs and to the first time he wielded the Wolverine claws in the blockbuster X-Men film franchise," states the show's producers, Dainty Group.
"Jackman croons, twirls and shimmies through several medleys, including stunning tributes to classic musicals. A state-of-the-art lighting, sound and video production and a vast company of 150 musicians, singers, dancers and choir will support Jackman’s showmanship and infectious Aussie charm."
Jackman's one-man show, Hugh Jackman, Back on Broadway, was presented Nov. 10, 2011-Jan. 1, 2012, at the Broadhurst Theatre. In Hugh Jackman, Back on Broadway, the singing actor performed a personal selection of his favorite musical numbers that reflected on his life and career. During the limited run, Jackman raised over $1 million for Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS. He received a Special Tony in 2012.
