“It’s not just that they don’t make ’em like Hugh Jackman anymore – they never did […] What makes it irresistible is Jackman’s charm, which was most evident in his ad libs, which never crossed the line of becoming glib, and in his ability to roll with the punches, from split pants to handcuffs and even an audience member who shouted out her phone number. No matter what was happening onstage, what launched the audience to its collective feet at the end was simply Hugh and the night and music.” — SAN FRANCISCO CHRONICLE
“Jackman gamely hustled his way through almost two hours of classic show tunes, power ballads and chorus-girl-worthy hoofing. If the Hollywood gigs ever dry up, the A-list hottie can definitely fall back on his cabaret chops. While the world premiere of this one-man show may not have been flawless, it was quite a hoot to spend the evening in the hands of a master showman.” — SAN JOSE MERCURY NEWS
“Hugh Jackman may not be a Grammy Award-winning recording artist or Astaire Award-winning dancer, but the Tony Award-winning stage and film star has something else: tons of charisma and an unerring sense of showmanship. Those qualities help make his concert, Hugh Jackman in Concert, now at San Francisco’s Curran Theatre, a don’t-miss, feel-good evening of energetic entertainment.” — THEATRE MANIA
