Broadway's Bounty

Hugh Jackman in Back on Broadway. is a nifty little website that's kept me off the streets the last few years by giving me the opportunity to review some of Broadway's seasonal offerings. This fall's harvest has been rather bountiful so far, with the mesmerizing revival of the Stephen Sondheim musical Follies and Hugh Jackman's rousing song-and-dance fest, Back on Broadway (above), as well as new plays from a talented up-and-comer (Katori Hall's The Mountaintop) and an established veteran (Theresa Rebeck's Seminar) that are providing great roles for actors of note Samuel L. Jackson, Angela Bassett, Alan Rickman, Jerry O'Connell, Hamish Linklater and Lily Rabe.
