About the show

Dubbed "magic's Cirque du Soleil" by The Times, The Illusionists is back in London with a limited summer run at Shaftesbury Theatre. For just eight weeks, audiences can ogle at five of the world's most talented illusionists as they stretch magic to its mind-boggling limits. The show has smashed box office records and won devoted fans across the globe with its epic feats. An unforgettable for the whole family, the show arrives in a puff of smoke from 6 July 2019.

Following its debut at Australia's Sydney Opera House, produced by Simon Painter with Tim Lawson, the show has gone on to perform in more than 350 different cities across 30 countries. A breathtakingly talented selection of performers have included escapologists, daredevils, manipulators, tricksters and weapons masters. Away from the stage, they have also made TV appearances, from America’s Got Talent and The Ellen DeGeneres Show to an NBC hour-long TV special.

The cast for the London run is made up of The Showman James More, The Futurist Adam Trent, The Unforgettable Enzo, The Mentalist Chris Cox, The Daredevil Jonathan Goodwin, The Manipulator Yu Ho-Jin and The Trickster Paul Dabek.

The Illusionists will have you open-mouthed in disbelief. Catch them during their strictly limited run at Shaftesbury Theatre from 6 July to 1 September 2019.
