Actor. Singer. Producer. All-round nice guy.
Is there anything Hugh Jackman can’t do?
With such an extensive list of skills under his belt, is it any wonder the man has been nominated for:
- An Oscar?
- 3 Golden Globes?
- A Grammy?
- 4 Emmys?
- 2 Tonys?
Yes, it’s incredibly rare that we find anyone who wears so many hats.
And this August, this great showman will be bringing all of his many talents to the stage in Melbourne, with a fantastic show full of song, dance, and more!

Following a successful series of tours in Europe and the US, Hugh Jackman returns home for the second-to-last leg of his world tour.
Featuring a setlist that draws from his extensive career on the screen and the stage, there’s something for everyone here, including:
- Smash hits like This Is Me from The Greatest Showman
- The melodramatic Who Am I from Les Miserables
- The gloriously cheesy Gaston (who Hugh played in the stage adaptation of Disney’s Beauty and the Beast)
- All-time classics like Judy Garland’s Over The Rainbow
According to critics, there was even a segment where he tap danced to AC/DC’s Thunderstruck of all things – how’s that for range?!
Don’t just take our word for it, however – critics across Europe and the US have been raving about the man, the music, and the show. In particular, they’ve heaped praise on Hugh’s ability to work the audience, and the sheer range of talents on show.
Joining him for the Australian leg of the tour is special guest Keala Settle, who stunned audiences as Lettie Lutz, the bearded lady in The Greatest Showman.

Prepare for the show with some Hugh Jackman trivia
What better way to prepare for the Hugh Jackman show than with some trivia about the man himself?
Not only will this prepare you for the show, but it’ll also give you some conversation points you can show off during the drive to the city!
While his role as P.T Barnum in The Greatest Showman may have been high-profile, it wasn’t his first time in a musical. And no, we aren’t talking about this performance as Jean Valjean in 2012’s Les Miserables, either.
Did you know: before he hit cinema screens as Wolverine in the X-Men movies, Hugh Jackman started his career on the stage, with his first leading role as Gaston in the 1995 stage adaptation of Disney’s Beauty and the Beast?
He then went on to lead in productions of Sunset Boulevard, Oklahoma! and The Boy From Oz.
Here’s another piece of trivia: did you know that after graduating from secondary school, he completed a gap year where he worked as a PE teacher in the UK?
That’s what led to this heartwarming encounter, where Hugh recognised a journalist as one of his former students, and grilled him on his what happened after he graduated!
