Hamptons fan Hugh Jackman stars in the Broadway play The River, which opened Sunday
Jackson costars with Laura Donnelly and Cush Jumbo in this three-person play, which debuted back in 2012 at London’s Royal Court Theatre and experiences a sold-out run.
The River, playing at Circle in the Square Theatre, is written by Jez Butterworth and directed by Ian Rickson. Among those at the New York premiere were East Hampton’s Jerry and Jessica Seinfeld.
Congratulations to the amazing @thehughjackman on The River. A beautifully written and acted play, which opened tonight on Broadway. Hugh Jackman is just…just…just…PERFECT!!!! How does he exist? I don’t understand.

The synopsis states, “On a moonless evening, a man brings his new girlfriend to a remote cabin for a night of trout-fishing. But before the night is over, it becomes clear that nothing is as it seems… and as memory collides with desire, the truth becomes the most elusive catch of all.”
Jackson’s past Broadway credits include Steady Rain, Hugh Jackman, Back on Broadway and The Boy from Oz.
