Applause Theatre Service Has Learned That Woverine AKA Hugh Jackman & James Bond AKA Daniel Craig Are Ready To Take B'way By Storm!

The New York Post's Michael Riedel is reporting that film stars Hugh Jackman and Daniel Craig will team up in a new play this fall on Broadway.
The drama that will bring them together, reveals Riedel, is "A Steady Rain" by Keith Huff, is about two Chicago cops whose lifelong friendship is put to the test when they become involved in a domestic dispute in a poor neighborhood.

Theater sources say Craig and Jackman have the potential to match Broadway's biggest box- office champ, Julia Roberts, who sold over $10 million worth of tickets in just 12 weeks in the play "Three Days of Rain" in 2006.
Although "A Steady Rain" is harsh and harrowing, one Broadway expert predicted that even those theatergoers whose tastes run to splashy musicals will want to see it.
Said the expert: "Daniel Craig and Hugh Jackman in police uniforms? All the boys will be there!"
The Post reports that Barbara Broccoli who oversees the James Bond movie franchise, is producing "A Steady Rain." She arrives in New York from Europe this weekend to scout out Broadway theaters, sources told Riedel. The daughter of legendary James Bond producer Albert "Cubby" Broccoli, Barbara Broccoli produced "Chitty Chitty Bang Bang" on Broadway in 2005.
It was expected that Hugh Jackman would return to Broadway in another musical, the rumored 'Houdini', but it now appears that he has chosen a gritty dramatic piece for his next visit. To read the full report in The New York Post, click here.
