Hugh Jackman is planning to give a series of concerts in London during breaks from starring in the film version of Les Miserables. Shooting on the movie, which is being made by Tom Hooper, will begin in the UK next February. Hugh will play the central role of former convict Jean Valjean.
The actor has just completed a short run of his In Concert show at the Princess of Wales Theatre in Toronto, accompanied by two Broadway performers and a 17-piece orchestra. The show saw Jackman giving a tour de force performance, singing classic numbers from Oklahoma!, Carousel, Dreamgirls and the Peter Allen catalogue.
