Hugh Jackman is an Academy Award-nominated, Golden Globe Award and Tony Award-winning performer who has made an impression on audiences of all ages with his multi-hyphenate career persona – as successful on stage 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, Mr. Jackman has proven to be one of the most versatile actors of our time.
