Theatreland has some Tricks up its Sleeves with Latest Lure of Magic Shows
Wicked is no longer the only production “defying gravity” in Theatreland. Alongside its famous musicals and dramatic plays, London’s West End has recently welcomed its fair share of magic shows including the likes of Impossible, The Illusionists and Derren Brown’s Miracle.
Nothing is Impossible
The first show to grip audiences earlier this year was Impossible, which opened during the summer for a limited run at the Noel Coward Theatre. The show introduced some of the most talented professionals in the country including escapologist Jonathan Goodwin, mind-reader Chris Cox, mind game expert Katherine Mills, technology wizard Jamie Allan and magician Ben Hart.
It’s all an Illusion
In November theatregoers extended a warm, wowing welcome to The Illusionists, a group of seven magicians who made their London debut at the Shaftesbury Theatre. As well as breaking the boundaries of our imagination they also broke box office records with their impressive number of ticket pre-sales. The show also features a number of talented performers from magicians and mind readers to a card trick specialist. (yes, there really is such a thing!)
A Christmas Miracle
This December Derren Brown will bring his show Miracle to the Palace Theatre and has already announced additional performances due to popular demand, one of which will be filmed for broadcast release. One of the UK’s most well-known illusionists and no stranger to the West End, Derren has promised audiences a unique theatrical experience that will encourage them to push the boundaries of their imagination.
If you’re looking for something a little different during your visit to London this festive season, there is no better way to experience the magic of Christmas than with magic itself!
