Derren Brown to bring Svengali show to London
Date Posted: 14/02/11
Derren Brown is bringing his Svengali psychological illusion show to the West End following a successful national tour.
Those booking London hotels will be able to see the performer at the Shaftesbury theatre from Monday June 13th, following previews from Wednesday June 8th.
He will be directed by Polly Findlay for the first time ever, who is currently overseeing Twisted Tales at the Lyric Hammersmith.
Although the content of his shows is kept quiet, Brown is promising an evening of audience participation.
"More than that I wouldn't want to say. I ask audiences to keep the contents of the show a secret so as not to spoil it for others, and I have to do the same. But I hope it's fun and freaky and a great night out," he added.
Brown has entertained millions on TV with shows including Russian Roulette, where he danced with death with a semi-loaded gun.
