When it comes to Hugh Jackman, many have their own individual preconceptions of his persona. I, for one, am more accustomed to seeing him with adamantium claws protruding from his fists than on stage breaking into a musical number. I was intrigued to see what the 50-year old – yes, 50 – actor could produce with a two-hour set promising insight and entertainment. It was night three of an already extremely well-received tour beginning at The SSE Hydro Arena. As he tap-danced to Thunderstruck, having reprised his role as Jean Valjean from Les Misérables and performed an entire segment as the flamboyant Peter Allen, the extent of this man’s repertoire became evident.
