With news of Hugh Jackman’s In Performance concert series doing well and traveling to different cities, there’s also been remarks that the intention was for it to eventually land in New York. The New York Post, however, reported that there might be something else brewing up on Broadway.
Recently, Hugh did a reading with Tony-nominated actress Laura Benanti (Women on the Verge of a Nervous Breakdown) for a stage adaptation of the Tim Burton film, Big Fish. Andrew Lippa of The Addams Family will be composing the score for the upcoming musical. Will Hugh actually be involved with the project when it hits the stage? The facts are still unknown. The NYP mentioned that he was “flirting” with the idea, so only time will tell if he actually jumps on board.
After the great success of Hugh Jackman, In Performance at the Curran Theatre in San Francisco, his one-man show is making its next stop: this time, in Toronto. According to the Toronto Star, he’ll be visiting the city this summer and performing at the Princess of Wales Theatre for a two-week limited engagement (July 5-17th). It’s already been announced that Hugh and his team intend on bringing the show to various venues, so be on the lookout to see if he’ll head close to your hometown.
