Brown returns for enigmatic West End summer

First Published 9 March 2009, Last Updated 10 March 2009

Mind-control magician Derren Brown is to return to the London stage this summer with new show Derren Brown: Enigma.

The master of psychological illusion is to play 30 dates at the Adelphi theatre from 15 June to 18 July, following Joseph And The Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat at the venue.

Brown last wowed London audiences in the summer of 2008 with his show An Evening Of Wonders, and previously won a Laurence Olivier Award for his 2006 show Something Wicked This Way Comes. His distinct brand of mind manipulating magic has won him fans and honours for his TV series and specials, which have included Mind Control, Trick Of The Mind, Trick Or Treat, and the controversial Séance, The Heist and Russian Roulette.

Though the new show is currently being written, in conjunction with his director, the actor and magician Andy Nyman, Brown had this to say about his latest stage project: “Like previous shows, I will absolutely push myself to the limit. The challenge is to create new material that shocks, delights and defies explanation. The audience will be taken for a theatrical rollercoaster ride, and I hope it’s an experience that they will never forget.”

Tickets for Enigma go on sale from Thursday 12 March.

Though there has been no official confirmation that Joseph And The Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat is closing, the Andrew Lloyd Webber show starring Gareth Gates as the biblical explainer-of-dreams and style icon recently reduced its booking period. It is now booking until 30 May.

We are so sorry that in these testing and difficult times you are not able to enjoy the show you have booked for and hope the following helps clarify next steps in respect of your tickets .

There is nothing that you need to do if your performance has been cancelled, but we do ask for your patience.

If you have booked directly with the theatre or show website for an affected performance, please be assured that they will contact you directly to arrange an exchange for a later date, a credit note/voucher or a refund. If you have booked via a ticket agent they will also be in contact with you directly.

We are processing in strict date order of performance, so you are likely to be contacted after the date you were due to go to the theatre. However, we want to reassure you that you will be contacted, and your order will be processed, but please do bear with us.

We’d like to thank everyone who has been patient and kind in dealing with their ticket providers so far and we are sorry that we cannot process your order as quickly as we would like.

Please do not contact your credit card company as that will slow the process down and put an additional burden on our box office and ticket agent teams.

Please be reassured that if we have to cancel future performances you will be directly contacted by your theatre or ticket provider.

We look forward to welcoming you back into our theatres as soon as we are allowed to resume performances. In the meantime stay safe and healthy.
