Hugh Jackman, BACK ON BROADWAY finished performances today, and after earning a $6 million advance before the show even opened, it's unsurprising that a look back shows that the production broke multiple records.

According to the Associated Press, the show's final week pulled $2,057,354 in ticket sales - and its complete run earned well over $14 million, earning Hugh ten of the Broadhurst's top 11 grossing weeks (the other being THE MERCHANT OF VENICE in early 2011). The average ticket price was $160, with top premiums set at $350.

The show proved to be good not only for investors, but for Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS as well, raising a record-breaking $1,789,580 for the charity.

Jackman won a 2004 Tony Award, Drama Desk, Drama League, Outer Critics Circle and Theatre World awards for Best Actor in a musical for his portrayal of the 1970s singer-songwriter Peter Allen in The Boy From Oz. Jackman made his first major U.S. film appearance as Wolverine in the first installment of the X-Men franchise, a role he reprised in the enormously successful X2 and 2006's X-Men: The Last Stand. In 2009, Jackman took on the Oscar host as he fronted the 81st Annual Academy Awards.
