Magician Derren Brown’s Unbelievable on at the Criterion Theatre

A good magic show should be unbelievable, and that’s exactly what this West End production promises.

Written and directed by stage and screen magician Derren Brown, Unbelievable will be on at the Criterion Theatre in the West End, right on the corner of Piccadilly Circus, until January 7, fusing the very best of illusion, sleight-of-hand and mind-reading.

In a reimagining of live magic, a company of performers brings audiences an original evening of jaw-dropping entertainment.

Once the audience steps inside the Criterion Theatre, they become part of the production – and are promised to leave believing in magic.

After decades of appearing solo, Derren’s magical tricks have been entrusted in the hands of other like-minded performers Andy Nyman and Andrew O’Connor.

This is a show for everyone, if you’re looking for a night out with friends or a family evening to celebrate the end of 2023.

Mr Brown said: “We have liberated the magic show and created something invigorating, wondrous, and fun.

“I’ve finally been able to delve into the full range of what magic can offer, and at its best, and to all ages. It’s been crafted with love and I’m delighted that audiences are enjoying it so much. It’s a beautiful thing.”
