Why See Derren Brown: Secret?
The phenomenon that is Derren Brown makes his American theatrical debut this year in with a brand new show. The Olivier-winning psychological manipulator has been wowing audiences across the pond since 2000 with his startling mentalism, high-key illusions and manipulations, delivered with sublime skill and trademark dry wit, challenging beliefs and expectations.
Prepare to be bewitched by the talents of this consummate showman whose previous feats have included playing Russian Roulette on live television, convincing members of the public to willingly carry out a bank heist among many other unbelievable, controversial antics. A two bit charlatan he ain't.
Whilst studying at university the young Brown found his head turned by a hypnotist show. Discovering he had a natural flair for weilding the psychological principals behind cohesion and the power of suggestion, he went on to practice traditional close up magic before lending his mentalism skills to his live shows. Since then he has gone on to create multiple books, television specials and award-winning live shows that have raised him to one of his native UK's most influential and respected practitioners, baffling audiences with his skills before explaining the often very simple psychology behind them.
What shall I expect?
Brown's shows are a heady mix of multi-media presentation and display, reliant on pliable audiences ready to participate fully in the experience.
