Emmy Award winner and practicing illusionist Neil Patrick Harris will direct the Geffen Playhouse's production of Derek DelGaudio and Helder Guimaraes' sleight-of-hand-based show Nothing to Hide, according to published reports. The work, which is written by DelGaudio, will open on November 27 and runs through January 6.
