It was reported last week that Darren Aronofsky had dropped out of the Wolverine sequel, which is too bad. That would have probably been a pretty good Wolverine movie! At the very least, it would have been better than the last Wolverine movie. Eek. But it’s important in this world to always look for the yellow lining, you know? The bright wet side! With the movie delayed, Hugh Jackman has now announced a limited engagement of live performances…in San Francisco…where he’s going to…sing…his favorite showtunes? “YAY!” From The Wrap:
Everyone’s favorite Oscar host will sing and dance his way through a new stage show at the Bay City’s The Curran Theatre for a two week limited run.
Jackman will also perform numbers from his Tony award-winning star turn in “The Boy from Oz.”
Entitled “Hugh Jackman In Performance,” the show runs from May 3-15. Tickets have already gone on sale through SHN.
The only thing more compelling than the idea of Hugh Jackman on-stage singing his favorite showtunes (seriously, what is going on here?) is the scintillating title “Hugh Jackman in Performance.” Wowzers. Kaboom! Fireworks, I’m sure. Hopefully a Bay Area reader will send us a report of what it’s REALLY like when Hugh Jackman lets the actor in him take over. Hugh Jackman pees his pants.
