Derren Brown brings Svengali back to the West End for a final run
Monday 14 May 2012
Derren Brown’s 2012 Olivier award-winning show Svengali, will take up residence at London’s Novello Theatre for 27 performances only, from July 12 – Aug 11. This is the last chance to see the sell-out live show that has mesmerized the nation, performing in over 150 venues
Derren, who professes that he loves writing and performing on stage more than anything else, says:
"I enjoy the stage shows more than anything else. This one is fun, dark, funny, freaky. Live on stage is the best place for what I do: it's unpredictable, and the audience knows there's no possibility of judicious editing. Plus we've put in new material for this year and the show has grown and changed on the road more than any other."
Svengali is written by Derren Brown and Iain Sharkey with Stephen Long and produced by Michael Vine, Andrew O'Connor & Corrie McGuire for Objective Talent Management.
On stage as well as on TV Derren is in a class of his own, exhilarating audiences with his unique brand of entertainment. For the past ten years he has created TV and stage performances that have stunned audiences, debunked the paranormal and encouraged many to improve and enhance their own mental abilities. His first show appeared in 2000, Derren Brown: Mind Control, and was followed with Trick of the Mind, Trick or Treat and a series of Specials including the controversial Russian Roulette, the hugely popular Events, Hero at 30,000 Feet and the more recent Experiments.
Derren’s live stage shows have earned him a string of award nominations, including three Oliver nominations. He has twice won the Laurence Olivier Award for Best Entertainment Show , and a Silver Rose d’Or for Variety.
