Derren Brown will present a brand-new show UNBELIEVABLE – Magic Reimagined which will open in London’s West End at the Criterion Theatre this September.
Following the huge success of Derren’s recent production of SHOWMAN, UNBELIEVABLE is billed as “a magic show like no other”.
Fusing the best of theatre with jaw dropping illusions never before seen in the West End, UNBELIEVABLE features a New York Subway band and a company of multi-talented performers who will bring to life, live on stage, an evening of bewildering trickery, from the imagination of Derren Brown.
The show includes an updated version of a one act play not seen on the London stage in over 100 years! Will, The Witch and the Wolfman, combines comedy, illusion and song to provide a breathtaking conclusion to an extraordinary evening in the theatre.
The ambition for UNBELIEVABLE is to create an experience you can’t get anywhere else in the world. From the moment the audience set foot in the theatre, they will be an essential element – indeed the beating heart of the show.
Speaking further on Unbelievable, Derren Brown said:
“We have reimagined what a night of illusion could be. We have taken the love and experience we’ve put into my own stage work over twenty years and created, from the ground up, a proper, original, theatrical experience. I think we have liberated the magic show. It’s going to be a glorious thing.”
Created, written and directed by UK stage and screen phenomenon Derren Brown, and long-time collaborators Andy Nyman and Andrew O’Connor. Derren Brown will NOT appear in the show.
Unbelievable begins performances at the Criterion Theatre on Piccadilly on 19 September 2023 and will have an initial booking period to 7 April 2024.
