VIDEO: He's Truly THE MUSIC MAN! 10 Favorite Theatrical Performances from the Great Hugh Jackman
BroadwayWorld reported earlier this week that the star of stage and screen, Hugh Jackman, will be returning to Broadway late next year in The Music Man. This return comes after a smash turn in the musical film The Greatest Showman, for which he received a Golden Globe nomination and launched him into his worldwide tour beginning this year.
Jackman is no stranger to the stage having appeared on Broadway four separate times and earning a Tony Award in 2004 for his performance as Peter Allen in The Boy from Oz. He has also adapted one of the most iconic stage characters for the screen, playing Jean Valjean in Les Misérables, which earned him his first Academy Award nomination.
We know he'll soon be singing "Seventy Six Trombones" but what other showtunes has he put his spin on? In anticipation for his great return to the Great White Way, here's Hugh Jackman in many of his theatrical turns.
