Hugh Jackman has made an impression on audiences of all ages with his multi-hyphenate career persona, as successful on stage in front of live crowds as he is on film. From his award-winning turn on Broadway as the 1970s singer/songwriter Peter Allen, to his metal claw-wielding Wolverine in the blockbuster X-Men franchise, Jackman has proven to be one of the most versatile actors of our time.
Jackman garnered his first Academy Award nomination for Best Actor for his performance in Tom Hooper’s Les Misérables. His appearance as protagonist Jean Valjean also earned him a Golden Globe Award for Best Actor in a Comedy/Musical, as well as Screen Actors Guild Award nominations, for both Best Ensemble and Best Male Actor in a Leading Role, and a BAFTA Award nomination.
Most recently, Jackman was nominated for his role as P.T. Barnum in The Greatest Showman. Sales for the soundtrack to the film have broken records the world over and reached multi-platinum status in many countries including the UK and America.
Jackman has announced his first world tour for May 2019. Called The Man. The Music. The Show., it will see him perform hit songs from The Greatest Showman, Les Misérables and other Broadway shows and films, accompanied by a live orchestra.
