NEW YORK -- Hugh Jackman is doing what he does best - selling tickets.

The Broadway League says the Tony Award-winning performer's one-man show pulled in more than $1.2 million at the box office during eight preview performances last week.

"Hugh Jackman, Back on Broadway" beat out Daniel Radcliffe's "How to Succeed in Business" and the all-star cast of Stephen Sondheim's "Follies" the week ending Sunday.

In Jackman's show, he and an 18-piece orchestra perform songs from his stage and film career, including his star turn in "The Boy from Oz." The show opens Nov. 10.

Jackman's pull broke The Broadhurst Theatre's box office record, beating "700 Sundays" starring Billy Crystal, "Hamlet" with Jude Law and "The Merchant of Venice" starring Al Pacino.
