The world’s biggest selling magic spectacular, The Illusionists – Direct From Broadway, returns to London with a brand new show! The Illusionists is a mind-blowing spectacular showcasing the jaw dropping talents of seven of the most incredible illusionists on earth. Collectively these performers have been seen by millions across the world and this production showcases their talents on stage together for the very first time.
The Daredevil and Escape Artist, British-born Jonathan Goodwin is widely considered one of the most creative stunt performers in the world. He has arred in numerous TV series including One Way Out for Discovery Channel and Dangerman: The Incredible Mr Goodwin for the BBC as well as Deathwish Live, How Not To Become Sharkbait and The Seven Stupidest Things to Escape From.
The Showman, James More, is currently one of the world’s leading and most viral illusionists. He first came to public attention on Britain’s Got Talent in 2013. He has had a sold out tour in Russia with his Theatre of Illusion show and was then approached by The Illusionists, performing with the show for over two years in five continents around the globe. He then became the first British magician in history to appear on New York’s infamous Broadway.
The Trickster, Paul Dabek is one of the UK’s top entertainers, he has performed across six continents and headlined his own show in Las Vegas.
The Unforgettable, Enzo, wants his audience to forget everything they know and prepare to live an unprecedented experience though which all their senses will be put to the test. He held his first magic show at 11 years old, with humble resources. However, he wished to stage far more impressive illusions, and spent a year as an engineering student during which he was taught how to draw up plans and to understand mechanics and electrotechnics.
The Mentalist, Chris Cox is a multi-award winning ‘mind reader who can’t read minds’ and the star of the TV shows Chris Cox’s Mind Boggling Magic (CBBC) and Killer Magic (BBC Three). He has previously appeared in The Illusionists Direct From Broadway in the USA, South Africa, Mexico & Australia, Impossible (London, Dubai Opera and world tour) and five critically-acclaimed one-man solo Edinburgh Fringe Festival shows which Chris has also performed throughout the UK and New Zealand.
The Manipulator, Yu Ho-Jin began his career in magic aged just 9 years old and it was only a decade later that he turned the magic community upside-down and won the first prize in Stage Magic and Grand Prix at FISM World Championship of Magic 2012. Today Yu Ho-Jin is considered to be the most elegant and artistic manipulator alive by the world’s leading magicians.
The Futurist, Adam Trent inaugurated the first two record-breaking Broadway runs on the US tour of The Illusionists. His frequent TV appearances on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, The Today Show, and countless others as well as an NBC primetime TV special and his own 10-episode TV series premiering May 2017 on Red Bull TV, further highlight his appeal to audiences of all ages.
