Houdini The Musical opens in the UK, June 6

The new UK production, Houdini - The Musical, receives its world premiere at The Playhouse in Weston Super Mare, Somerset on June 6, 2007.

Jamie Alan Nicklin, co-writer of Houdini the Musical says: "This production is the realization of a lifetime's ambition for me. Houdini has always been my idol since I was a little boy. In those days, he was top of the bill for all grand illusion tour shows which in my opinion far outshine a lot of the modern shows in terms of style and grandeur that sadly you simply don't see any more. It is this feeling of grandeur from the golden age of variety that we want to recreate in the minds of our audiences who come to see the musical."

Canadian born Sam K. Andrews plays the role of Houdini with Kerry Whiteside as Bess. Part of the show features a recreation of Houdini’s famous Chinese Water Torture Cell escape.
