Derren Brown returns to London's West End
Posted on 10 April 2013
Derren Brown returns to London’s West End with a brand new live show. The acknowledged master of psychological illusion will once again mesmerise, shock and entertain the nation. Derren says: "I enjoy the stage shows more than anything else. Live on stage is the best place for what I do: it's unpredictable, and the audience knows there is no possibility of judicious editing”.
About Derren Brown
“Visual wizardry to blow even the most cynical of minds” - whatsonstage
“His latest show sees him climb to artistic heights rarely, if ever, achieved by any other legends of the magical arts… Derren Brown, you put Merlin to shame!” - Time Out
“Utterly baffling and completely extraordinary… you must just marvel and wonder at it all” Sunday Express
Derren Brown began his UK television career in December 2000 with a series of specials called Mind Control. Since redefining the genre of magic for intelligent, modern audiences, he has become synonymous with the art of psychological manipulation. His TV shows have become must-see events. Amongst a varied and notorious career, Derren has played Russian Roulette on live television, convinced middle-managers to commit an armed robbery in the street, led the nation in a séance, stuck viewers to their sofas, successfully predicted the National Lottery, motivated a shy man to land a packed passenger plane at 30,000 feet, exposed psychic and faith-healing charlatans, and hypnotised a man to assassinate Stephen Fry. On top of this he tours the UK every year with a sell-out stage show.
At home, Derren is a quiet 41-year old who paints, keeps a parrot and enjoys Bach. He dislikes mushrooms and blue cheese, and wishes he could play the piano.
