HUGH Jack­man, 50, wants to “re­unite” the cast of his 1999 film Ok­la­homa! to per­form with him on stage.

The Aus­tralian ac­tor played Curly McLain in the movie di­rected by Trevor Nunn, which is based on the Richard Rodgers and Os­car Ham­mer­stein II mu­si­cal of the same name. The movie fea­tured the en­tire 1998 Lon­don re­vival cast from the Royal Na­tional The­atre and Hugh has a “lit­tle idea” to re­unite with his cast mates when he tours with his Hugh Jack­man: The Man. The Mu­sic in 2019. He has al­ready been talk­ing to his former co-star Mau­reen Lip­man – who played Aunt Eller – about his plan.

Hugh said about his tour: “You’re gonna hear songs from The Great­est Show­man, from Les Mis, from stuff I’ve done from the last 25 years on stage.” | Bang Show­biz
