Hugh Jackman The River. A new play by Jez Butterworth
Show Summary
This small-scale but gripping drama is the newest play by British playwright Jez Butterworth, who was behind the spectacular play Jerusalem in 2011. The River, like Jerusalem, is directed by frequent collaborator Ian Rickson. The play has only three characters, and will star Hugh Jackman, as well as Laura Donnelly and Cush Jumbo, the latter two making their Broadway debuts. Playing in the intimate Circle in the Square Theatre, The River is set in a remote cabin in an unexplained location. The story is enigmatic and suspenseful, and the production is flawless according to all the London reviews.

The River on Broadway
  What Is THE RIVER Like?
The show begins as an unnamed man (Hugh Jackman) is trying to persuade his new girlfriend to join him to go night fishing.  Suddenly she disappears, and then reappears, or rather all of a sudden, the audience is led to doubt the reliability of the show’s protagonist.  In a theatrical feat, the audience members must become detectives in order to solve the show’s puzzle.  The dialogue is bitingly fresh, and the startling play is reminiscent of Harold Pinter.  The poetry of the lines are strengthened by Ian Rickson’s masterful direction, displayed in his past Broadway productions of Jerusalem, Hedda Gabler, The Seagul, and The Weir.
Is THE RIVER Good for Kids?

This play is recommended for people over the age of 14.  It is an advanced piece of material that is most appropriate for a mature intellect.  Children under the age of 4 are not permitted in the theatre.
