It's been a big year for Houdini in Germany. Not only did we see a major new documentary, but a new Houdini stage musical, DER GROSSE HOUDINI (The Great Houdini), premiered on October 24, 2014 at the Theater Hof in Hof, Germany.

Houdini is played by Chris Murray (right). Bess is played by Cornelia Löhr. Christian Venzke plays Hardeen; Janelle Groos is Cecilia Weiss; Christian Venzke is Daisy White; and Andreas Bühring is Leopold Weiss. Book, music and lyrics are by Paul Graham Brown. Stage direction is by James Edward Lyons with musical direction by Kenneth Duryea.

You can find more information (in German) at the Theatre Hof website. Below are pics from the production from the Theatre Hof Facebook page and video from YouTube.
