Hugh on the Tony Red Carpet

Here’s a new NY1 interview from yesterday’s Tony red carpet. It’s relatively short, with emphasis on Hugh’s return to theater (and, specifically, how he’s not yet ready to hang up Peter Allen’s Hawaiian shirts), but there’s great insight in it. There’s also more talk of Houdini, including some about the famous magician — who happens to have a lot of the star quality Hugh Jackman has himself! Here’s what he had to say about the upcoming musical:

“I’m very excited. Aaron Sorkin is writing the book, Stephen Schwartz doing the music, Jack O’Brien directing [and] David Rockwell [providing scenic design]… We have a very exciting group, [and] we’re about to do a first act read-through in about a week.”
