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.

http://www.usatoday.com/story/life/theater/2014/01/17/hugh-jackman-headed-back-to-broadway/4585713/

>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.

Apparently, it's been bumped up to later this year. Nifty.

so should we expect record ticket prices for this. especially if it plays a small theater like the Schoenfeld, Longacre or Jacobs.
A Chorus Line played its final Broadway performance on August 17, 2008. The tour played its final performance on August 21, 2011. A new non-equity tour started in October 2012 played its final performance on March 23, 2013.

Even smaller house, I think.

Well it's playing the Circle in the Square, I can't even imagine how crazy this ticket prices will be, especially around the holidays!! An average of $250 would not surprise me (BOM was close to that this year!).

I loved Jerusalem so much that this news almost disappoints me. High Jackman at Circle in the Square? It's going to be obscenely expensive (and difficult) to get a ticket.

There are $35 day of seats.
Begin at the beginning and go on till you come to the end: then stop.

"There are $35 day of seats."

Guess we should line up now.

Jo, I believe it's Telecharge. So, a small theater + Hugh Jackman means $250+ seats and a handful of $35 seats that will be impossible to get. Nope.

Thanks!

I like the ampitheatre seating for this theatre ( I've only seen photos).
