I'd say that but you never know, they could be more. When the musical The Producer's was on I had a friend who payed upword of $500 and he had nose-bleeder seats. Though that was a Mel Brooks production and his shows tend to be more expensive, like Disney theatricals too.

Hugh Jackman Confirms 'A STEADY RAIN' Broadway Role To ET

Stage and screen superstar Hugh Jackman confirmed he is indeed coming to Broadway in "A Steady Rain", the actor revealed the news to Entertainment Tonight while attending a private party for Joel Grey's new book of photography, 1.3 - Images from My Phone in Manhattan.

Jackman, remarked "I'm just really excited to be working with Daniel Craig, working with him. And just working on Broadway in a play, which I'm trained in and I haven't done yet." To watch his clip on Entertainment Tonight, click here.

The New York Post's Michael Riedel reported last week that film stars Hugh Jackman and Daniel Craig would be teaming up in a new play this fall on Broadway. The drama that will bring them together, reveals Riedel, is "A Steady Rain" by Keith Huff, is about two Chicago cops whose lifelong friendship is put to the test when they become involved in a domestic dispute in a poor neighborhood.

The Post reports that Barbara Broccoli, who oversees the James Bond movie franchise, is producing "A Steady Rain." She arrives in New York from Europe this weekend to scout out Broadway theaters, sources told Riedel. The daughter of legendary James Bond producer Albert "Cubby" Broccoli, Barbara Broccoli produced "Chitty Chitty Bang Bang" on Broadway in 2005.

It was expected that Hugh Jackman would return to Broadway in another musical, the rumored 'Houdini', but it now appears that he has chosen a gritty dramatic piece for his next visit. To read the full report in The New York Post, click here.

In 2000, Hugh Jackman was cast as Wolverine in Bryan Singer's X-Men. Jackman later reprised his role in 2003's X2: X-Men United, and 2006's X-Men: The Last Stand. Jackman starred as Leopold in the 2001 romantic comedy film Kate & Leopold, for which he was nominated for a Golden Globe Award for Best Actor - Motion Picture Musical or Comedy. Jackman also starred in 2001 action/drama Swordfish, along with John Travolta, and Halle Berry. Jackman sang the role of Billy Bigelow in Carousel in a special concert performance at Carnegie Hall in Manhattan, New York City in 2002. In 2004 he played the title role of vampire hunter Gabriel Van Helsing in Van Helsing. In 2004, Jackman won a Tony Award for his Broadway portrayal of Australian songwriter and performer Peter Allen in The Boy from Oz. He hosted the Tony Awards in 2003, 2004 and 2005. Jackman's other stage credits include "Carousel," "Oklahoma!" "Sunset Boulevard" and "Beauty and the Beast." Hugh Jackman was voted People's Sexiest Man of 2008

Daniel Craig succeeded Pierce Brosnan as filmdom's new James Bond in the 2006 film Casino Royale and the 2008 Bond release Quantum of SolacE. Craig's popularity as a leading man spread beyond his native England with the success of the 2004's Layer Cake (also with Sienna Miller). Prior to that he was known to TV audiences as the star of the BBC miniseries Our Friends in the North (1996), and to movie audiences as Paul Newman's son in the 2002 film Road to Perdition (with Tom Hanks and Jude Law), and as poet Ted Hughes in Sylvia (2003, starring Gwyneth Paltrow as author Sylvia Plath). Craig's other films include Some Voices (2000), Lara Croft: Tomb Raider (2001, starring Angelina Jolie), Enduring Love (2004, with Samantha Morton), The Jacket (2005, with Adrien Brody) and Munich (2005, with Craig as a Mossad assassin).

Keith Huff holds an MFA from the University of Iowa's Playwright's Workshop and is the recipient of a Jeff Award, a Drama-Logue Award, the Cunningham Prize, the John Gassner Award, the Berrilla Kerr Award, and three Illinois Arts Council Playwriting Fellowships. He has developed plays at The O'Neill Theatre Center National Playwrights Conference, The Public Theater, New York Theatre Workshop, New York Stage and Film, Steppenwolf, Berkeley Rep, Victory Gardens, The Eureka Theatre, Studio Arena Theatre, Wooly Mammoth, Eye of the Storm, Echo Theatre, Act One/Showtime, Alice's 4th Floor, Florida Studio Theatre, WordBridge Playwrights Laboratory, and Midwest PlayLabs. His plays have been produced Off-Broadway, internationally, and nationally.

A Steady Rain, developed at NY Stage and Film and The Barrow Group in New York, played to critical acclaim during its sold-out 6-week run at Chicago Dramatists and received Jeff Awards for New Work and Best Production.

I wish I were able to buy a plane ticket and a ticket for the show! Who knows, maybe I'll get lucky and my dad will take me.

I'm personally a bigger fan of this website:

http://www.broadwayworld.com/

Great reviews on the message boards as well as insight on the shows. But ticketmaster would be the better bet for actually finding tickets :lol:
