What you read in the NY Post is true. Not sure exactly when, but I'm really excited. A great team for The River... Can't wait to tread the boards again!!! #TheRiver #thegreatwhiteway<<<


He is currently filming in South Africa.

Very excited for THE RIVER as a major Jackman fan as well as an admirer of Jez Butterworth. Loved JERUSALEM; I hope the character of The Man has the same tour-de-force quality as Rylance's character in JERUSALEM.

There is official confirmation that the play will premiere on Broadway during the 2014-2015 season, based on the report of USAToday.

>A spokesperson for the production said that the play, which was staged in London by the Royal Court Theatre in 2012, will premiere on Broadway in the 2014-15 season, with Sonia Friedman Productions and the Royal Court co-producing.<<<

Also, Michael Riedel has indicated a likely spring 2015 opening.

Will it be a limited engagement?

X-Men Apocalypse will also be shooting in 2015 so I imagine Hugh needs to confirm when he needed for that before they can lock down dates and a theatre for The River.
