Standing ovation for Craig's Broadway debut

Daniel Craig and Hugh Jackman received a Broadway standing ovation after their first performance in the play 'A Steady Rain'.

In it, they play Chicago police officers confronting difficulties.

The 90-minute play has just two characters. It arrived in New York after a well-reviewed run in Chicago with a different cast.

Craig and Jackman have significantly increased the star wattage of the production.

Craig skyrocketed to film stardom as the latest cinematic James Bond, and Jackman plays Wolverine in the X-Men movies.

They drew a standing ovation from the sold-out theatre on what was Craig’s Broadway debut.

'A Steady Rain' was written by Keith Huff. It officially premieres on September 29 and will run for 12 weeks.
