Over at the New York Post, Michael Riedel is reporting some big news. According to Riedel, Hugh Jackman will return to the Broadway stage as early as October 25th! Performing at the Broadhurst, he’ll bring his one-man show to New York a bit early courtesy of production delays for The Wolverine. Important excerpts from the article are below:
Jude Law and Hugh Jackman, two guys who can sell out a theater in about 30 seconds, are coming back to Broadway.
Jackman’s first up, opening Oct. 25 at the Broadhurst for eight weeks in his one-man show, which received rave reviews this summer in Toronto.
Chemistry between performer and audience should propel Jackman’s one-man show to weekly million-dollar grosses this fall.
Jackman’s slipping in at the last minute because of production delays on the next installment of the “Wolverine” franchise.
It’s a smart move. The fall lineup is dreary, so Broadway can use a shot of that ol’ Jackman magic.
This doesn’t seem to be officially confirmed by Hugh’s reps, but he has previously spoken candidly about wanting to bring his show to NYC. For now, I’m categorizing it as a Rumored Project, although the possibility of it being true does seem likely!
