Fox Hat Trick with Peters, Pacino & Jackman???
Date: 9 May 2003
The Daily Mail also reports that three more high-profile Broadway hits could find their way to London at some point, thanks to British producer Robert Fox. His productions of Oscar Wilde's play Salome (See The Goss, 25 Mar 2003), starring Al Pacino and Marisa Tomei, and Sam Mendes' revival of Gypsy (See This Week's Feature), starring Bernadette Peters, have both opened to strong reviews in the past fortnight (though the latter has been troubled by the illness-forced absences of its leading lady). Coming up in October is The Boy from Oz, starring Australian Hugh Jackman as camp showman Peter Allen. Jackman illuminated the National Theatre's stage in Trevor Nunn's 1998 production of Oklahoma! and has since found international fame for his film roles in X-Men and the just-released X-Men 2. All three productions have previously been tipped for West End transfers; in today's newspaper, Fox confirmed the plans, though no dates or venues are confirmed.
