Derren Brown’s stage shows are shrouded in mystery. Critics are sworn to secrecy and audiences help keep his tricks of the trade from the general public.
After dazzling London theatre-goers, the maestro is set for a national tour.
The new show is called Miracle and be prepared to be amazed. It launches a UK tour on February 8 and arrives in Milton Keynes Theatre the following week.
The psychological illusionist baffles the most cynical. His shows are described as miraculous, mind-boggling and entertaining.
What anyone who watches a Derren Brown show can be sure of is that, no matter how openly he explains in advance what he is about to do and how he is going to con you in the process, 90% of your brain will be totally befuddled and bemused by his mind-altering genius.
The other 10% will just be blown away by the extraordinary events that unfold before you, live on stage.
“I am often dishonest in my techniques but I’m always honest about my dishonesty,” says Derren.
The (guarded) reviews for the show, which closes in the West End this week before launching a national tour, have been unanimous in their five star ratings – and from his fiercest critics – the national press.
