Hellzapoppin opened at the 46th Street Theatre on September 22, 1938. It moved to the Winter Garden Theatre in November of that year and to the Majestic Theatre in 1941. There were a total of 1404 performances.

One of the acts was Theo Hardeen the brother of Harry Houdini. Next to Hardeen’s photo was this text: Theo Hardeen has been one of the country’s leading neo cromancers (sic) for years. The brother of the late Houdini, past president of the Society of American Magicians, and one of its most active members, he has a repertory of tricks, augmented by those willed him by his brother, which gives him a rating as head of the profession.
