Super Hugh-Man

This award-winning* autobiographical solo cabaret by acclaimed Kiwi entertainer Rutene Spooner, is a musical love letter to the great Wolverine and Broadway star, Hugh Jackman.

Embracing the qualities that both Hugh Jackman and Wolverine possess, Rutene takes us on his personal voyage of discovery from being a young Māori boy growing up an outsider in a world for which he has no blueprint for. He comes to the realisation that it’s ok to be a different kind of man…

He can be strong and sensitive.

He can haka and high kick.

He can be fierce and fabulous.

Directed by NZ theatre veteran Jennifer Ward-Lealand, Super Hugh-Man is a shamelessly charming and heartfelt story, intricately weaving together comedy, dance, kapa haka and song into a stunning show.

* “Excellence Award”, 2017 Auckland Theatre Awards.
