In a statement on Wednesday, the Tony winner talked about the special evening.

He said, "It is an honor to bring our show to Los Angeles. We have a very special evening planned for you that will raise money and awareness for MPTF, a cause very close to my heart."

For fans that missed his acclaimed show in New York, this will be a great opportunity to see the handsome Australian star sing and dance in his often-snug pants. The original production featured songs from Oklahoma, The Boy From Oz and Carousel backed by showgirls and an 18-piece orchestra.

Audience members for the upcoming fall show might expect to hear a few songs from Les Misérables as well. Jackman played the iconic Jean Valjean in the 2012 Oscar-nominated film.

Tickets are available for pre-purchase through Aug. 9 via the actor's official website.
