Tony-winning mega-star Hugh Jackman will hit the stage at Los Angeles’ Dolby Theatre for a one-night-only concert benefitting the Motion Picture & Television Fund. Hugh Jackman…One Night Only will be held on October 12, 2013 and will feature “musical entertainment and special Hollywood film moments, along with a few star-studded surprises” according to press notes.
“It is an honor to bring our show to Los Angeles,” said Jackman in a statement. “We have a very special evening planned for you that will raise money and awareness for MPTF, a cause very close to my heart.”
The show is ostensibly a reboot of Jackman’s critically acclaimed concert Hugh Jackman, Back on Broadway, which opened at New York’s Broadhurst Theatre in November 2011. The concert featured Jackman (and an array of female dancers) singing musical theater hits like “Singin’ in the Rain,” “Luck Be a Lady,” Oklahoma!’s “Oh, What a Beautiful Morning,” Carousel’s “Soliloquy,” and a medley reprisal of his Tony-winning role as Peter Allen in The Boy From Oz.
Jackman earned a Tony for his Broadway debut in The Boy From Oz in 2003 and went on to star opposite Daniel Craig in the smash hit A Steady Rain. On screen, audiences are more than familiar with Jackman thanks to his iconic role as Wolverine in the X-Men franchise, as well as his Oscar-nominated turn as Jean Valjean in the 2012 movie adaptation of Les Miserables.
