About the showHot off the back of a UK tour the latest offering from psychological illusionist and all round trickster Derren Brown arrives at London’s Palace theatre.
Olivier Award winning entertainer Brown commented about the new show “More than any other show it's been an extraordinary voyage. Some of its braver aspects not only work but seem to work unsettlingly well. In some ways it's the boldest, most contentious show yet. But audiences are responding well to it. And I just love doing it – it's quite a rollercoaster.”
The show is directed by Brown’s long time collaborators Andy Nyman and Andrew O’Connor.
Derren Brown employs a combination of magic, suggestion, psychology, misdirection, and showmanship in his performances. He first appeared on our screens back in 2000 in Channel 4’s Mind Games and became famed for his psychological magic. He has since gone on to have a number of successful TV shows and one offs. His notorious stunts have included playing Russian roulette live on TV, enlisting a bunch of pensioners to steal a painting, sticking people watching TV to their chairs, successfully predicting the National Lottery results and convincing a man that there had been an apocalypse.
This show is Derren Brown’s seventh live show since 2003. Past shows include Infamous and Olivier Award winners Svengali and Something Wicked this Way Comes.
Miracle opens at the Palace theatre on the 11th of November after current musical The Commitments closes and will play until the 16th of January 2016.
