Hailing from Australia, the first iteration of the show premiered at the Sydney Opera House and was produced by Simon Painter with Tim Lawson. Since then, a magical line-up of performers have contributed to the show, from escapologists, manipulators and daredevils to weapons masters and warriors. It has played in more than 350 cities in 30 different countries. Not simply confined to the stage, they have also appeared on television shows like America’s Got Talent, The Ellen DeGeneres Show and an NBC hour-long TV special.
The cast for the Shaftesbury Theatre comprises a dazzling line-up of talent. Audiences meet The Showman James More, The Futurist Adam Trent, The Unforgettable Enzo, The Manipulator Yu Ho-Jin, The Mentalist Chris Cox, The Daredevil Jonathan Goodwin and The Trickster Paul Dabek.
