Derren Brown - Underground
Newcastle Theatre Royal
Monday 7th – Wednesday 9th August 2017
Derren Brown, the multi award-winning master of psychological illusion is making a triumphant return to Newcastle Theatre Royal with his latest stage presentation Underground.
The nation’s favourite dark manipulator of magic and mind control transfixed full house audiences during a week long run of Miracle in 2016. Direct from its recent sold-out London run, Derren Brown: Underground features a collection of some of the very best of his previous stage work brought together into a spell-binding experience of showmanship and magical genius.
Derren comments: “It’s not a brand new show, rather an opportunity to see me perform some of my own choice of favourite bits from the past fourteen years of touring. Hopefully, it will be just as rewarding an experience for those who have seen me before as it will be for first-timers.”
Derren has toured every year since 2003 and been watched by an estimated audience of nearly two million people. He has won prestigious Olivier Awards, for Something Wicked This Way Comes (2006) and Svengali (2012). His last show, Miracle, his most daring to date, was universally acclaimed by critics and the world-wide audience alike.

Directed by Andrew O’Connor & Andy Nyman, Written by Andy Nyman, Andrew O’Connor & Derren Brown, setting by Will Bowen, lighting design by Charlie Morgan Jones, general manager is John Dalston.
