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.

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.
