Houdini Gets Elfman Magic

Published on April 18, 2008 with No Comments

Celebrated composer Danny Elfman has landed the magical job of turning illusionist Harry Houdini’s life into a stage musical.

Elfman, who has been moviemaker Tim Burton’sĀ longtime musical partner for films like The Nightmare Before Christmas and Charlie + The Chocolate Factory and the creator of both The Simpsons and Desperate Housewives themes, will create the music for the new Jack O’Brien production.

Architect and designer David Rockwell will create the sets and co-produce, alongside Scott Sanders, who brought hit show The Color Purple to the New York stage.

Houdini will debut on Broadway in 2010.
