Andrew Tomlins, for West End Frame, writes:
“I am still shaking my head in disbelief at what I witnessed.” – ★★★★★
Kate Stanbury, writing for OfficialLondonTheatre.co.uk, reflects:
“His talent for storytelling and inherent sense of humour adds an element of stand-up comedy to the production, making the performer compelling to watch even when he isn’t warping logic beyond recognition.”
Sarah Bull, of The Daily Mail, observes:
“It is on the stage that he really comes alive – relishing the chance to stun and baffle his audience.” – ★★★★★
Mark Shenton, for The Stage, writes that the show is:
“As bold and brave as it is constantly unnerving”
Comparing Derren with the stand-up comedian Daniel Kitson, Dominic Cavendish, for The Telegraph, writes: -
“There’s a depth of intelligence in what they get up to on stage – a relish for the poetical and the philosophical too – that easily stands comparison with the finest drama.” – ★★★★★
Nadia Mendoza, for the Daily Star, writes:
“Derren’s exquisite skill is nothing shy of sheer genius.”
Richard Voyce, for PlaysToSee.com, comments:
“The fact that he even has the stamina, let alone the sheer talent, to make us believe that he is doing what he is doing night after night is a feat in itself.” – ★★★★★
Abby Moss, writing for Planet Ivy, writes:
“Go see Derren Brown if you like being so confused that you resort to violence, like an angry bear trying to get into a coolbox.”
Peter Brown (no relation), writing for londontheatre.co.uk, describes Derren:
“This is a showman of the very first order – make no mistake of that.” – ★★★★
Fiona Mountford, for the Evening Standard, announces:
“The master mentalist is back in the West End and he’s here to mess with our heads.”
Elly Perry, writing for The Upcoming, notes:
“Brown is a very clever man and slightly bonkers.” – ★★★★
Carole Gordon, writing for What’s On Stage, reminds us:
“Just be grateful that the likable Brown is using his powers for entertainment and enlightenment, and he’s not sitting in a remote mountain lair, stroking a white cat and plotting global domination.”
