Hugh Jackman To Launch ‘Broadway To Oz’ Music Show

Hugh Jackman will put on his tux and his Wolverine claws for a stage show that will tour his native Australia later this year.

The “Broadway To Oz” concert show will play major arenas in five cities and is structured as a personal journey through Jackman’s life, from early days in Outback Australia through successes in musical theater and Hollywood stardom.

It will mix medleys of work that Jackman has been directly associated with, as well as tributes to classic musicals. Jackman will be backed by a company of 150 musicians and dancers.

“’Broadway to Oz’ is a dream come true. This is the show I’ve always wanted to bring home,” Jackman said in a statement.

Jackman’s career began in Australia in the 1990s with starring roles in stage productions of “Sunset Boulevard” and “Beauty and The Beast” and the Australian Broadcasting Corporation’s TV drama series “Corelli,” during which he met his wife, co-star Deborra-Lee Furness. Roles in Australian independent films “Paperback Hero” and “Erskineville Kings” were followed by Hollywood successes including “The Prestige,” “The Fountain,” “The X-Men” franchise and its “Wolverine” spinoff, and “Les Miserables,” for which he earned an Oscar nomination. His more recent stage successes include the hit Broadway show “Hugh Jackman: Back On Broadway.”

“Broadway To Oz” is produced by Robert Fox for The Dainty Group. The show starts in Melbourne on Nov. 24, touring through Sydney, Brisbane and Adelaide, before closing in Perth on Dec. 15.
