Derren Brown Svengali at Regent Theatre
April 20, 2011 Leave a comment
Master of the mind, Derren Brown, brings his all new show, Svengali, to The Regent in 2011. Derren is a massive hit with Stoke audiences and his three night residency is sure to be the hottest ticket in town!
Be prepared for a theatrical roller-coaster ride as the acknowledged master of psychological illusion returns to the stage with a brand new show DERREN BROWN: SVENGALI. With 65 dates so far confirmed (with more to follow) across the UK, Derren once again sets out to show why he is one of the world’s most renowned live performers; a master of magic, mind control and manipulation. This is his fifth tour and is expected to sell out as quickly as the last, DERREN BROWN: ENIGMA.
Derren said today:”I am in the early stages of writing the new show. So far, I have no idea what it will be. But it’ll be a full evening of mind-melting based around audience participation, that much I know. It’s a bit terrifying knowing that dates are selling already and I don’t know what I’ll be doing on stage yet, but it’s like that every year. For the moment, though, it’s great fun – thinking up things to freak people out. What could be more enjoyable?”
On stage as well as on TV Derren is in a class of his own, exhilarating audiences with his unique brand of intelligent and theatrical entertainment. His Mind Control, Trick of the Mind, Trick or Treat and Events programmes have garnered rave reviews and awards. His specials have provoked much controversy and acclaim and further consolidated his reputation as a performer prepared to constantly challenge and break boundaries. He has also received much praise for his best-selling book, Tricks of the Mind, which has currently sold over 360,000 copies. He has also enjoyed considerable success in America, when his show Derren Brown: Mind Control, was screened on NBC’s Sci-Fi Channel. Derren’s most recent TV special was Derren Brown: Hero at 30,000 Feet, which again caused controversy whilst capturing considerable acclaim. He has a new book published in October 2010 entitled Confessions of a Conjuror.
