Derren Brown: Miracle is characteristically shrouded in mystery, with audience members and critics alike asked to be tight-lipped about the astounding feats that have made Derren Brown peerless in his craft. If his past award-winning shows, Something Wicked This Way Comes and Svengali, are anything to go by, the audience can expect his remarkable skill to be in full flow with mind games, language tricks and sleight of hand masterpieces that leave audiences dumbfounded and expose the inner workings of our minds.
Brown’s commanding, intelligent, and humorous stage presence has captivated audiences – once quite literally when audience members were stuck to their seats by power of suggestion in How to Control the Nation (2009) – and Derren Brown: Miracle shows off his trademark blend of showmanship and mystery. The show brings something unique to the West End “when almost everything in theatre is open to inspection and demonstrably explained, it is refreshing to find a performer who depends on bafflement and secrecy” (The Guardian).
Derren Brown has redefined the genre of magic since his TV career kicked-off with debut series Mind Control (2000). Since then we have seen an assassination attempt on the life of national treasure Stephen Fry in The Experiments (2011), a zombie attack in Apocalypse (2012), and middle-managers pulling off an armed robbery in The Heist (2006). Miracle promises to perform the seemingly impossible, and will be a treat for even the most cynical.
Derren Brown: Miracle will open on 11th November 2015 at the Palace Theatre and will run until 16thJanuary 2015.
