DERREN BROWN: INFAMOUS (illusionist)
NOT SUITABLE FOR THOSE AGED UNDER 12, THOSE OF A NERVOUS DISPOSITION OR
THE EASILY OFFENDED.
Previews from 24th June, opens 27th June 2013. Ends 17th August 2013.
The multi-award winning acknowledged master of psychological illusion
returns to the West End stage with his new one-man show DERREN BROWN:
INFAMOUS. Following a sell-out 81-date national tour, the dark
manipulator brings his unique brand of magic and mind control to the
Palace Theatre, Shaftesbury Avenue.
INFAMOUS, a more ‘personal’ show, sees Derren re-united with his close
collaborator and friend actor, writer Andy Nyman. He says:
“We abandoned the template that had won us a couple of Oliviers over the
years for a very different feel. It's important to us that the shows
feel like something you can't find anywhere else in theatre or
entertainment: not even my own previous efforts. I'm really excited by
the result. The show is a secret so I'm not giving away what's in it,
but it's a psychological roller-coaster based around audience
participation. And it's got a real heart to it. The response on tour has
been incredible, it's all such a treat."
INFAMOUS is Derren’s 6th show since 2003 and sees him return to the
Palace Theatre, nine years after his debut West End show, ‘Derren Brown
Live’, in 2004. Since then he has toured every year and been watched by
an estimated audience of over one million people. He has won two
prestigious Olivier Awards, for SOMETHING WICKED THIS WAY COMES (2006)
and SVENGALI (2012), and confesses that touring is still his favourite
thing to do.
INFAMOUS is produced by Michael Vine, Andrew O'Connor & Corrie McGuire
for Objective Talent Management. Directed by Andy Nyman, written by
Derren Brown & Andy Nyman. Set Design by Simon Higlett, Lighting Design
