Does Hugh Jackman want another Tony so as to add to his awards cabinet? Or is he seeking to prove that Spider-Man: Turn Off The Dark wasn’t this type of terrible idea in spite of everything by laying the rules for Wolverine The Musical? Either way the X-Men actor has announced that he’ll return to New York’s Broadway to accomplish a diffusion of his favourite musical numbers, including songs that reflect his stage and movie career. With that during mind TF is asking forward to hearing something from Blood Brothers (geddit?) that reflects his relationship with Sabre Tooth in Wolverine, ‘The Farmer And The Cowman’ from Oklahoma to mark his role in Australia, plus ‘I’m A Bad, Bad Man’ from Annie Get Your Gun to remind him that he was in Van Helsing. Hugh Jackman, Back on Broadway opens for previews on 25 October on the Broadhurst Theatre, with the official opening night on 10 November. It runs until 1 January 2012. "I can’t believe it has been seven years since I USED TO BE singing and dancing on Broadway,” said Jackman. “There is nothing like functioning on the nice White Way and i am so excited to be coming ‘home’.” Can you actually call it a one-man show if you find yourself accompanied by an 18-piece orchestra, though?
