The IllusionistsAfter a successful staging in the capital in 2015, The Illusionists went on to smash box office records around the world. Now, the show returns to London with a strictly limited run at the Shaftesbury Theatre. The show presents an evening of tricks, stunts and illusions by seven of the world's most masterful magicians, given grand titles like James More, The Showman; Enzo, The Unforgettable; Adam Trent, The Futurist; and Jonathan Goodwin, The Daredevil. The British-born escape artist has been buried alive, hung by his toes from helicopters, attacked by sharks and even sewn up inside a dead cow. Each magician has their own special skill, together they can create acts of grand illusion, levitation, mindreading and disappearance.

 

About Shaftesbury Theatre

A large and appealingly shabby Edwardian theatre which has produced almost a century of successful popular drama and musicals. The most notorious of these was Hair, infamous both for onstage nudity and an unfortunate ceiling collapse that terminated its near 2000 performance run. More about Shaftesbury Theatre
