The River Reviews

And in banking his fires so compellingly, [Hugh Jackman] ascends with assurance to a new level as a stage actor.
Ben Brantley, The New York Times
But the show is all about Jackman. His sturdy star turn is manly, measured and speckled with melancholy.
Joe Dziemianowicz, New York Daily News
Hugh Jackman is electrifying in The River, a concentrated, mysterious fish tale of a play.

Summary

Tony Award winner Hugh Jackman returns to Broadway in The River, a spellbinding new play written by Jez Butterwoth and directed by Ian Rickson, the team behind the hit play Jerusalem.

A remote fishing cabin, a man and a woman, and a moonless night. The River asks: when we find each other, are we trying to recapture someone we once lost?

Erotic, chilling and poetic, The River promises to be the must-see event of the season.
