Ben Hanlin has joined the line-up for the West End’s latest magical offering, The Illusionists – Witness The Impossible, when it arrives at the Shaftesbury Theatre this weekend.
The magician, best known as the presenter of ITV2’s hidden camera show Tricked, will take to the stage alongside other mind-boggling acts including Britain’s Got Talent’s Jamie Raven and Edinburgh Comedy Festival Fringe’s star Colin Cloud.
The full line-up also includes Andrew Basso (The Escapologist), Kevin James (The Inventor), Ben Blaque (The Warrior), Den Den (The Manipulator) and David Williamson (The Trickster).
The Illusionists – Witness The Impossible brings its incredible array of jaw-dropping talent to the West End from 14 November to 3 January, but Hanlin will only appear in the show for the first two weeks of its run until 28 November.
Promising high-octane performances from the biggest and best illusionists, the magic show arrives in the West End having played to audiences in more than 71 cities across 17 cities worldwide.
The Illusionists – Witness The Impossible opens at the Shaftesbury Theatre prior to the West End premiere of Broadway hit Motown The Musical, which brings the story of Motown founder Berry Gordy to the London stage in February.
