Performers Return for Impossible at the Noel Coward Theatre
Audiences might remember the hit show Impossible, which ran at the Noël Coward Theatre last summer, as it provided a spectacular magic shows for West End theatregoers.
Now, those who failed to get in on the action in 2015 will have another chance in 2016 as the production is set to return to the same venue this July, entertaining audiences until the later days of August. With Lloyd Wood taking over directed duties from the experienced Anthony Owen and performers taking to the stage like Chris Cox, this will be welcome return.
The show was well received when it appeared last year and it saw names like Chris Cox, Jonathan Goodwin and Ben Hart appear alongside a wealth of other performers. Those three return for the 2016 alongside newcomers Magical Bones, Josephine Lee and Sabine Van Diemen. Together they will mix stunts with illusion, throwing in magic and other spectacular visual forms to create something truly memorable.
Chris Cox performs as a mind reader whilst Jonathan Goodwin is an escapologist and Ben Hart is a magician. Along with the newcomers (though Magical Bones did join the cast last year as well), they will undoubtedly have a lot to offer audiences again in 2016. This will be aided by director Lloyd Wood, who has experience of helming an array of shows around the world, with productions appearing in Edinburgh, Chichester and beyond.
The Noël Coward Theatre is currently the home of Mrs Henderson Presents, the stage adaptation of the film of the same name. Whilst Judi Dench took on the title role in the screen version, Tracie Bennett leads the cast in the West End as it takes audiences back to the 1930s as Henderson renovates an old cinema and turns it into the Windmill Theatre, introducing us to the Windmill Girls along the way.
That production continues at the venue until June, with Impossible set to make its return in the following month from early July.
