New York: Actor Hugh Jackman will return to Broadway in an upcoming revival of Meredith Willsons "The Music Man".
It marks Jackman`s first musical role in more than a decade. 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. Scott Rudin will produce the revival, reports variety.com.
On Twitter, Jackman said "The Music Man" will come to Broadway on October 22, 2020.
