Hugh Jackman might be playing a con-artist on Broadway, but there’s no scam here: It really is the Australian actor’s condo that hit the market in the West Village this week.

Jackman, who returned to the stage this spring in a revival of “The Music Man,” has put his triplex condo at 176 Perry Street on the market for $38.9 million. The two-time Tony Award winner bought the home in 2008 for $21 million, records show.

Corcoran’s Deborah Grubman, who has the listing, said Jackman and his wife, actress Deborra-Lee Furness, are selling because they’re ready for a change, but that they’re unlikely to leave the area.

Grubman is likely no stranger to the rich and the famous. Her husband, Allen Grubman, is an entertainment lawyer who has represented Bruce Springsteen, Madonna and U2, among several others. Her stepdaughter, Lizzie Grubman, has been a publicist to stars including Britney Spears, Jay-Z and The Backstreet Boys.

“I think that the celebrity factor in selling is probably not as important as it once was,” Grubman said, but added that the family’s well-established reputation for being generally good people may help the condo find a buyer. The listing, which appeared online Tuesday, makes no mention of Jackman.
