About the show

Britain’s Got Talent star Jamie Raven is the highly anticipated special guest as The Illusionists, the most successful magic show in Broadway history, hits the West End. Bringing together 7 of the world’s most skilled illusionists, this show is an unbelievable spectacle guaranteed to have audiences on the edge of their seats.

In this choreographed multi-media extravaganza, each illusionist brings his own special flair to the stage. There’s The Magician, Jamie Raven who stunned the nation with his mind-boggling tricks; The Escapologist, Andrew Basso whose Houdini tribute suspended in a water tank will be literally breath-taking; The Inventor, Kevin James who will treat you to unique illusions of his own creation; The Deductionist, Colin Cloud whose mind-reading skills make him a modern day Sherlock Holmes; and finally The Warrior, who channels William Tell and shoots an apple off the head of a lucky audience member...

The Illusionists is family-friendly entertainment that brings together new takes on old tricks and a host of never-before seen spectacles. The magicians wear fabulous costumes and are accompanied on stage by a live band. This show brings back the magic of variety theatre to the West End and having already sold out in 71 cities in 17 countries, this is a trick not to miss!

The Illusionists will open on 14th November 2015 at The Shaftesbury Theatre and will play there until 1st March 2016.
