Cast Announced for Derren’s Brown Unbelievable

Internationally acclaimed psychological illusionist Derren Brown is thrilled to announce his first-ever cast for his brand-new show UNBELIEVABLE, which opens in London’s West End at the Criterion Theatre, Piccadilly Circus on 19 September 2023. UNBELIEVABLE is a Mercury Theatre co-production with Vaudeville Productions and Kenny Wax Ltd.

Cast Announced for Derren's Brown UnbelievableAfter decades of appearing on stage solo, this will be the first-ever time that one of Derren’s shows will be performed by a cast rather than himself.

UNBELIEVABLE will be a magic show like no other. The Company of multi-talented performers will bring to life on stage an evening of bewildering trickery fusing the best of theatre and music with jaw dropping illusions never before seen on a West End stage. The cast – UNBELIEVABLE’s Magic Company, will play multiple roles while the audience will be the production’s beating heart. Derren is asking any audience member who is prepared to possibly be part of the show to express their interest at the time of booking.

Speaking on the UNBELIEVABLE cast, Derren Brown said: “This cast has been hand selected for their range of talents and skills. It’s no mean feat casting a show that requires performers to act, dance, and perform magic, and this exciting young cast will no-doubt be able to transport people into a totally new theatrical world.”
