Magicians added to Impossible line-up

First Published 2 June 2015, Last Updated 2 June 2015

Street trickster Magical Bones, escapologist and magician Ali Cook and grand stage illusionist Luis De Matos will join the line-up of jaw-dropping acts set to wow audiences this summer in the premiere of new magic show Impossible.

The innovative new production, which also stars previously announced performers Jonathan Goodwin, Chris Cox, Katherine Mills, Ben Hart and Jamie Allan, will play at the Noël Coward Theatre from 24 July to 29 August.

Billed as “The biggest magic show London has seen in decades”, Impossible promises dumbfounding stunts, including a death-defying water tank escape and street magic with a 21st century twist, in a fast-paced, mind-boggling extravaganza directed by BAFTA winner Anthony Owen.

Audiences can expect cars to disappear at the hands of Portuguese grand illusionist De Matos, daredevil escapology and expert sleight of hand from the multi-magically talented Ali Cook and dancing out of straightjackets from former hip-hop dancer Magical Bones.

The show launched earlier today at the Hospital Club, where speechless spectators were treated to a taster of the Impossible feats set to hit the West End stage for the first time next month.

Illusion-loving theatre fans will be able to see the Impossible feats for themselves following the current run of Royal Shakespeare hit Death Of A Salesman, which closes at the Noël Coward Theatre on 18 July to make way for the magic.
