In case you still haven’t had enough of Hugh Jackman after his Tony turn, now’s your chance to see him in his return to the Great White Way! Tickets are now on sale for Jez Butterworth’s The River, starring the Tony winner and Oscar nominee. Performances begin on October 31 at the Circle in the Square Theatre. Opening night is set for November 16.
Directed by Ian Rickson, The River is Butterworth’s follow-up to the Tony-nominated Jerusalem. The play, which had an acclaimed run helmed by Rickson in 2012 at London's Royal Court Theatre, tells the story of a man and a woman in a remote cabin on the cliffs on a moonless night.
The production will run for a limited engagement through January 25. In addition to Jackman, The River will star Laura Donnelly and Cush Jumbo in their Broadway debuts.
