Hugh Jackman, Back on Broadway follows recent sold-out runs in San Francisco and Toronto. Scott Weigand in the San Francisco Chronicle said "Jackman is a dazzling singer and dancer. It's not that they don't make ‘em like Hugh Jackman anymore - they never did."
In the Toronto Star, Richard Ouzounian said, "It almost seems illegal that a man this good-looking and charming should be able to sing and act with such skill. What makes Jackman and his show so spectacular is one word: talent. The man is an absolute wow."
