Aaron Sorkin updates progress on Houdini musical

Aaron Sorkin has provided an update on the Houdini Broadway musical he is writing for Hugh Jackman in an interview with the Los Angeles Times.

"Work on Houdini has been underway for a while, with [composer] Stephen Schwartz and I meeting regularly — either in New York or L.A. — to map out the show we’re doing (also not a biography), move index cards around a board, listen to first drafts of songs and read first drafts of scenes. That work will get more intense as we head for a June 25 stumble-through with Hugh [Jackman]."

The Houdini musical was first announced in 2008. The project gained new life when Sorking came onboard in 2010. It's now aiming for the 2013-14 season.
