A HOST OF WORLD-CLASS MAGICIANS TO PERFORM INCONCEIVABLE FEATS OF MAGIC AND ILLUSION, DEATH-DEFYING ESCAPOLOGY, GRAND STAGE ILLUSIONS, STATE-OF-THE-ART TECHNOLOGICAL MAGIC AND UP-CLOSE-AND-PERSONAL SLEIGHT OF HAND
Impossible, the most dangerous show the West End has ever seen, will arrive at the Mayflower Theatre in spring 2016 before embarking on its inaugural UK tour, visiting Liverpool, Birmingham, Sunderland, Stoke, Edinburgh and Manchester. The show features the world's greatest illusionists live on stage in a magic spectacular that will thrill and amaze audiences of all ages.

Fresh from its ground-breaking run in London’s West End, audience should prepare to be mesmerized and baffled as Impossible brings together world-class performers showing off a stunning range of magical artistry.
Director Lloyd Wood said “The Impossibleteam are embarking on an extraordinarily exciting journey bringing together masters of their craft from the UK and abroad to demonstrate their exceptional skill, dexterity and fearlessness presenting original and inventive stage magic. Exploring the feats of the impossible with grand illusion, sleight of hand, daredevil escapology and mind-blowing mentalism we aim to inspire and thrill our audiences from all around the UK whilst taking them on a journey through the light and dark of magic, mysticism and mystery across the ages.”
Producer Jamie Hendry added “I am thrilled that after the phenomenal reception audiences of all ages gave Impossible in London’s West End, we will be touring the show around the UKfeaturing bigger illusions and spectacles than ever seen in the show before. I’m delighted to see so many magic shows open since Impossible launched last year proving the magic really is back!”
