Los Angeles, CA (December 10, 2018) – The Los Angeles Philharmonic Association announced today that tickets for Hugh Jackman: The Man. The Music.

The two shows, set for Friday and Saturday, July 19 and 20, 2019, see the Academy Award®–nominated and Golden Globe– and Tony Award–winning artist performing hit songs from The Greatest Showman, Les Misérables, and more from Broadway and film, accompanied by a live orchestra. “I’ve always felt strangely at home on a stage, no matter how big the stage is — sometimes even more than in life,” Jackman recently told the Associated Press. “Never in my wildest dreams did I think when I turned 50 I would be playing Madison Square Garden or the Hollywood Bowl.”
Hugh Jackman has made an impression on audiences of all ages with his multi-hyphenate career persona, as successful on stage in front of live crowds as he is on film. From his award-winning turn on Broadway as the 1970s singer/songwriter Peter Allen, to his metal claw-wielding Wolverine in the blockbuster X-Men franchise, Jackman has proven to be one of the most versatile actors of our time.
Jackman garnered his first Academy Award® nomination, for Best Actor, for his performance in Tom Hooper’s Les Misérables, based on the popular stage show created from Victor’s Hugo famous novel of the same name. Jackman’s standout performance as protagonist Jean Valjean also earned him a Golden Globe Award for Best Actor in a Comedy/Musical, as well as Screen Actors Guild (SAG) Award® nominations, for both Best Ensemble and Best Male Actor in a Leading Role, and a BAFTA Award nomination. Most recently, he was nominated for his role as P.T. Barnum in The Greatest Showman. Sales for the soundtrack to the film have broken records the world over.
