Conductor, Patrick Vaccariello
Even though "Hugh Jackman – An Evening with Hugh Jackman" may be a set performance, it is in effect a concert that also contains improvisations. Hugh Jackman is a Tony-Award-winning actor renown the world over, most notably by his roles in movies such as ''Wolverine'', ''X-Men'', ''Les Misérables'' and ''Real Steel.'' The Australian artist puts his talent in song and dance on full display before our very eyes and he is accompanied by dancers and an orchestra of thirty two pieces during the performance.
The show features various segments, including tributes to classic movie musicals like ''Singin' in the Rain'' and ''Guys and Dolls'' as well as odes to the Aborigine culture of Jackman's native Australia and Peter Allen, the Australian composer Jackman earned a Tony Award for playing in The Boy From Oz. Jackman improvises often throughout the show. His charming interactions keep things fresh and funny.
An international movie star who got his start in Australian theater, Jackman earned a Tony for his Broadway debut in The Boy From Oz in 2004, the same year he first hosted the Tony ceremony. He returned to Broadway in the 2009 hit "A Steady Rain'' opposite Daniel Craig, followed by the solo concert "Hugh Jackman, Back on Broadway'' in 2011. In 2012, he played the role of Jean Valjean in the musical movie "Les Misérables."
