NEW YORK – Hugh Jackman has left a lot of broken hearts – and records – on Broadway.
The hunky actor’s one-man show, Hugh Jackman Back on Broadway, ended its 10-week run at the weekend at the Broadhurst Theatre having earned $US2,057,354 ($2.04 million) in its final week.
That’s the highest ever weekly gross recorded by the Shubert Organisation, which owns the Broadhurst and 16 other Broadway theatres.
The previous record at the Broadhurst was held by the Al Pacino-led The Merchant of Venice, which took in $US1,175,750 earlier this year.
Backed by an 18-piece orchestra and six leggy dancers, Jackman belted out about two dozen musical theatre songs.
It was his third time on Broadway, following The Boy From Oz in 2003 and the play A Steady Rain with Daniel Craig in 2009.
