The New York Times has run a detailed article examining the difficult developmental path of "Houdini," a musical in which Hugh Jackman had once planned on playing the well-known escape artist. Despite the eventual withdrawal of Jackman as well as songwriter Stephen Schwartz, the producers of the show say that it remains in development and they expect it to appear on Broadway in a future season. The article reveals the outline of the show's plot as it had been developed so far which would have focused to some extent on Houdini's conflicts with Margery Crandon and other spiritualists.
