Item description for Houdini: A Musical by Muriel Rukeyser...

Houdini is a verse drama -- part biography, part fantasy/ Exploring issues of illusion and reality, Rukeyser leads us from Houdini's childhood (picking up pins with his eyelids) to acts under water and onstage, and his congressional testimony against spritual mediums. Dedicated and willed to Rukeyser's longtime companion, Houdini reveals subtexts of homosexuality, desire, race, and grief. The play's late sixties, early seventies language merges with timeless themes and the utterly seductive subject to appeal to Houdini devotees, poetry fans, and theater people nationwide.
