Nothing is too Wonderful to be True

It's a little early to be excited about this, but reports that a Houdini musical is in the works, aiming to open on Broadway in the spring of 2010. Danny Elfman, one of my favorite film composers, is set to do the music and David Yazbek will write the lyrics. Yazbek wrote the music and lyrics for one of my favorite musicals in recent years, Dirty Rotten Scoundrels. The two seem to have a similar sense of humor and I'm excited to see the results of this brilliant partnership.
