More About The River
The River Tickets Information
Hugh Jackman is most known for his roles on the big screen, especially his portrayal of Wolverine in the X-Men series. But the Aussie is no stranger to Broadway or the theatrical stage. Some of the best roles of Jackman's career have been performed in productions like Oklahoma!, Carousel, and The Boy From Oz. Jackman has also hosted the Tony Awards numerous times and won an Emmy for the performance. His theatrical work even extends to the screen, where he took the lead role of Jean Valjean in the film adaptation of Les Miserables.
Now, Jackman has returned to the stage in the lead role of Jez Butterworth's new drama The River. Starring alongside Cush Jumbo, the mysterious play centers on Jackman and Jumbo, known only as "The Man" and "The Woman", as they escape to a remote cabin for fishing, frolicking and other backwoods activities. But throughout the course of the play, more is revealed about The Man, and the drama explores dark territory. Not everything is as it seems.
It might be unfamiliar territory for Jackman based on his career output, or at least that might be an assumption one would have about this particular role, but he is embracing the new challenges and told the New York Times that this character was "the most exciting thing I've ever done."
