Hugh Jackman Starring in ‘The Music Man’ Revival on Broadway

[ad_1]

Hugh Jackman will return to Broadway in an upcoming revival of Meredith Willson’s “The Music Man.” It marks Jackman’s first musical role in more than a decade, which should make it a hot ticket. His last one, “The Boy From Oz,” resulted in a Tony Award for best actor.

Jackman will play con man Harold Hill, a role made famous on screen and stage by the late Robert Preston. The show follows Hill’s latest scheme, one that finds him posing as the head of boys’ marching band (cue “76 Trombones”).
