You've always wanted to see Hugh Jackman up close, and now you have the chance. The upcoming Broadway production of Jez Butterworth's new play, The River, in which Jackman stars, will offer bench seating in the first two rows of the Circle in the Square Theatre for every performance. The seats encircle the set design and are considered part of the show's "riverbank."

The production, which also stars Laura Donnelly and Cush Jumbo, will offer $35 tickets for every performance, with two options for purchasing. Starting the Monday of each week, 20 seats will be available for each performance that week and sold in advance at the box office. There will also be 20 day-of tickets available at the same price when the box office opens.

The Royal Court Theatre production, directed by Ian Rickson, begins previews Friday, October 31, and opens Sunday, November 16. The production will play a strictly limited 13-week engagement through Sunday, January 25, 2015.
