Hugh Jackman is set to perform a one-man Broadway show, singing songs from musicals with the backing of an 18-piece orchestra.

The X-Men star will perform the show, Hugh Jackman, Back on Broadway, from October 25 to December 20. As well as musical numbers, it will also feature Hollywood stories.

Jackman, who has previously performed the show in San Francisco and Toronto, has had much experience on Broadway. He appeared in a 1998 revival of Oklahoma! at London's National Theatres and won a Tony award for his role in The Boy from Oz in 2004.

He said in a statement: "I can't believe it's been seven years since I was singing and dancing on Broadway.

"There is nothing like performing on the Great White Way and I'm so excited to be coming 'home'."

The Australian actor is reported to be starring alongside Russell Crowe in Tom Hooper's film adaptation the musical Les Miserables.
