That's right theatre fans. Up and coming actor and Broadway newbie Hugh Jackman is set to begin performances tonight on Broadway in The River. O.K. I am joking of course. We all know Hugh Jackman is not only a Tony winning and Academy Award nominated actor but one of the biggest stars on the planet. The show which is scheduled to open on November 16 first premiered in the West End in 2012. Written by Jez Butterworth (Jerusalem) and directed by Ian Rickman, The River is running thru January 25 and clocks in at eighty-five minutes with no intermission. Now that's my kind of show. Why can't every show be that long? Now for those of you that are not familiar with the play here is a brief synopsis about The River from the show's official website. Enjoy! A remote cabin on the cliffs, a man and a woman, and a moonless night. Jez Butterworth's The River asks when we find each other, are we trying to recapture someone we once lost? The writer director team who brought you Jerusalem returns with a bewitching new story. Oh and in case you're wondering it is not a one man show. Mr. Jackman stars in the show with Laura Donnelly and Cush Combo. Now as you can expect tickets for the show are going fast. That doesn't mean you can't get them. You just might have to break the bank to do it. The good thing is that the theatre is so small that there isn't a bad seat in the house. Get your tickets to see The River on Broadway. Happy Halloween theatre fans!
