Hugh Jackman as Houdini in Broadway Musical

Posted: November 27th, 2008 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
Hugh Jackman as Houdini in Broadway MusicalSubmit Comment
At the premiere for "Australia," Hugh Jackman revealed that he will be starring in a Broadway musical about the life of magician Harry Houdini.

Danny Elfman, once the leader of pop group Oingo Boingo and now often a composer of movie scores, is writing the music. Kurt Andersen, a former magazine editor and current radio host in New York, is said to be working on the script.

Jackman is already working on magic routines. The show, when it materializes, will include him replicating big Houdini tricks on stage. Magician extraordinaire Ricky Jay is said to be giving him advice. At some point the producers may reach out to David Blaine and to Cirque du Soleil for help.

Magic is nothing new for Jackman, having played opposite Christian Bale in Christopher Nolan's "The Prestige."

Since he played a magician in The Prestige already and Peter Allen on stage in The Boy From Oz, couldn't they just hone both and have him be Doug Henning in " Look, kids ... it's Magic! "

Hahaha Okay I just have to say this...but when you think: "DANNY ELFMAN" the first thought you have is of a band called 'Oingo Boingo'? Who the f*ck wrote this?!?! lol ...."Now often a composer..." haha WTF?!?! It's been the mans career for more than 20 years.

Hugh Jackman is easily one of the best stage performers in the world, let alone one of the best actors today. This will be really good, and with Danny Elfman doing the music, how can you go wrong? Well, hiring David Blane may make it go ALL wrong! Just stay away from that Chris Angel wack job!
