Jackman says Houdini musical “off and running”

Some potentially good news here. Hugh Jackman says the Broadway Houdini musical, which was first announced way back in April 2008, is moving forward.

“We’re going to do a workshop of that in January [2011], so we’re off and running,” he told Broadway.com on opening night of Driving Miss Daisy. “We have some amazing people on board: Aaron Sorkin, Danny Elfman, Jack O’Brien. It’s going to be a really, really interesting group, so I’m excited.”

But the star cautions it’s just one of several stage projects in development. “I’m working on two or three things, because I don’t want to be away from the stage for too long,” he said. “New musicals take a long time to get into shape, so I have a feeling it may be something else first. But if [Houdini] is ready, I’ll do that. I’m practicing my magic tricks right now.”
