Tony winner Hugh Jackman's concert evening may arrive on Broadway earlier than expected. Jackman is eyeing an eight-week run with an October 25 opening night at the Broadhurst Theatre, according to The New York Post. Jackman was originally looking to perform his show in the fall of 2012, but the delay in filming his upcoming Wolverine sequel has opened up his schedule. Jackman is also reportedly hoping to perform in London while he shoots the upcoming Les Miserables film in the spring.
Jackman previously performed a set of solo shows in San Francisco and Toronto earlier this year. The concerts featured classic songs from musicals including Oklahoma!, Carousel and Dreamgirls.
The actor earned a Tony Award for The Boy From Oz. He has also appeared on Broadway in A Steady Rain. His many film credits include The Prestige, Australia, the X-Men series, Swordfish, Someone Like You, The Fountain, Happy Feet, Flushed Away and Van Helsing. He is attached to star in an original movie musical, The Greatest Showman on Earth, about the life of P.T. Barnum. Jackman has also served as the host of the Tony Awards (from 2003-2005) and the 2009 Academy Awards. He is rumored to play Harry Houdini in a musical about the magician penned by Aaron Sorkin.
