Chicago - New Houdini play.

Postby Geno Munari » February 14th, 2012, 10:01 am

I didn't see this posted here so here goes.

The Director that worked on the Expert At The Card Table and the Prologue sent me a note about some film work she did for a new play about Houdini, that opened in Chicago. Death and Harry Houdini. It is a silent film showing Harry doing an underwater escape, and it dramatizes the escape and him facing "death" who is an actual character in the show. They play the film leading up to the intermission of the play. Here is a link to the review: ... 198.column

Thanks Geno! I had run across an article on this, but failed to post it for some reason, either here or on my site. It's interesting how much Houdini material is out there right now.

There are actually two Houdini plays in Chicago right now. Death and Harry Houdini sold out in days and has now been extended to April 15. It will then travel to Miami. ... ng-in.html
