Hugh Jackman Returns to Broadway

14th March 2019 | Category: Theater

To all the musical lovers, get your trombones ready!

One of the biggest A-list and stage stars, Hugh Jackman, is returning to Broadway in the revival of Meredith Willson’s The Music Man. The show is currently running so if you can’t wait for his production to debut, visit the theatre right now and watch the spectacular Norm Lewis, Jessie Mueller and Rosie O’Donnell at the Albert Ivar Goodman Theatre in Chicago.

One of the entertainment’s biggest stars, Tony, Emmy and Grammy winner Hugh Jackman will lead the revival of The Music Man. Performances are set to begin on 9 September with opening night on 22 October. After the amazing box office success of his movie The Greatest Showman, Jackman has found himself another complex gig. Playing the charismatic Harold Hill marks his first musical role in almost 16 years, which should make it a hot ticket.

The Music Man was the first musical Hugh has ever played in back in 1983 while he was just a student from Sydney. He explained in a statement that during his first ever opening scene, the magic of theatre was born in him. He has been thinking about the revival of the show for years now and he was thrilled when he got the call from Scott Rudin. On the other hand, Rudin believes that the role is the best role ever written for a musical actor and that Hugh is the perfect man for the job. He is a diamond among the actors, being able to juggle big-screen action movies and old-fashioned sing-and-dance roles.

The Wolverine actor with many talents is kicking his first ever solo musical world tour performing old classics and the music from his projects. He sets off on 7 May in Great Britain and Europe before he flies off to North America. Dallas, Detroit, Houston, Chicago are just some of the cities that will get the chance to enjoy his amazing talent and charisma.

Tickets for his Hugh Jackman: The Man. The Music. The Show. tour can be found here.

Hugh Jackman appeared on Broadway in a few limited engagements such as A Steady Rain in 2009 and The River in 2014, and also the concert showcase Hugh Jackman, Back on Broadway in 2011, which generated a total gross of $83.4 million.

Many people are not fully aware of Alice Cooper’s greatness. Before Slipknot, before Red Zombie and before Marilyn Manson, there was Alice Cooper. This hard rocker has been fusing the metal and horror ever since the 1970s and he seems to have no intentions of slowing things down. He helped to shape the sound and look of heavy metal and was the first who introduced horror imagery to rock ‘n’ roll.

In addition to making music and touring, Cooper continues his radio show Nights with Alice Cooper that is broadcast on over 100 radio stations worldwide ever since 2004.

Cooper’s most recent album is 2017’s Paranormal, but he plans to introduce some brand-new songs and a new stage show called “Ol’ Black Eyes Is Back”. The legendary shock rocker promised some brand new songs for the tour and is currently working on new music with producer Bob Ezrin.

Halestorm is on the road, supporting their last year’s album Vicious, which earned them a Grammy for the Best Rock Performance. Lizzy Hale, the frontman of Halestorm who leads the rise of women in rock, is honoured to perform with Alice Cooper.

“We are beyond excited to announce our new tour with the man who burnt the rule book on rock ‘n’ roll… Alice Cooper. Alice is our A in the ABC’s of Rock music, and we are honoured to be sharing the stage with such a legend and his incredible band. School’s definitely out!”

“We’ve played festivals with Halestorm, including Rock In Rio, and now I’m excited about doing this summer tour with Lzzy and the band, can’t wait to get to the first show,” said Alice Cooper.

Don’t miss the clash of these titans and buy your tickets right now.
