About the show

British illusionist Derren Brown makes his Broadway debut this Fall with Derren Brown: Secret at the Cort Theatre. Featuring mind-bending tricks and sleight-of-hand persuasion, the show hits New York after a successful run at the Atlantic Theater Company.

Derren Brown: Secret challenges audiences to re-examine the beliefs and stories that influence our lives and relationships. Expect a unique blend of mind reading, illusions and the art of persuasion to feature in this daring show from one of the UK’s most acclaimed psychological showmen.

Derren Brown made his television debut in 2000 with Derren Brown: Mind Control and has gone on to become one of the UK’s foremost entertainers, best known for impressive feats of artifice and misdirection. He is a three-time winner of the Olivier Award for Best Entertainment for Something Wicked This Way Comes (2006), Enigma (2010) and Svengali (2012). His most recent television special, Sacrifice, aired on Netflix in 2018.

The show is co-written and co-directed by Andy Nyman and Andrew O’Connor, both long-term collaborators with Brown. Nyman’s credits include the Olivier Award-winning Something Wicked This Way Comes (2006) and the film adaptation of Ghost Stories (2018), starring Martin Freeman. O’Connor is a magician, comedian and actor who has co-produced all of Brown’s television programmes. His television series have won 5 BAFTAs.
