Hugh Jackman Readying For Harry Houdini Musical

Hugh Jackman singing and dancing again. Give me a moment.

Hugh is in New York City to rehearse for his Harry Houdini musical set for 2010. Jackman is reportedly hard at work learning Houdini’s magic tricks, many that will be reproduced faithfully eight times a week on stage.

Whatever he’s doing involving chains, water tanks, or straitjackets, Jackman looks no worse for the wear. I’ll second that. Hugh must have musical’s on his mind, because he’s in talks with Baz Luhrmann to team up with Beyonce for a movie musical.

Fingers crossed for that one.
