Jackman

One of Tinseltown’s biggest stars, Jackman is taking his talents to New York City, returning to Broadway for the long-awaited revival of “The Music Man,” opposite Tony-winner Sutton Foster. Though it’s been more than a decade since he has been on the Great White Way — “The Boy from Oz” landed him the lead actor Tony in 2004 — he is reviving his one-man stage show singing songs from “Oz” and “The Greatest Showman,” his 2017 movie musical that became an unexpected box office smash, at the end of 2021. Though “Music Man” will keep Jackman booked and busy, the A-lister still has a handful of leading roles on deck, including Michael Mann’s “Ferrari,” in which he stars as the Italian sports car magnate.
