I saw it last year and it was amazing and I’m going again this year. But I am mildly miffed because I want the tour to end so I can buy the DVD!!! Fantastic night out…I always feel like I should pay more to see magic done so perfectly! Thanks Derren!!!

Hi Derren,
I know you probably won’t get to read this anytime soon yourself but have just got home from watching Svengali in Bristol and it was marvellous…
I do hope you feel better soon, rather sad that you couldn’t come out and sign tonight though, a very small group of us loitered with intent outside the stage door despite the note, we were hoping it might be a trick! Were either showing great dedication or great stupidity…clearly the latter since you didn’t show! Haha you definitely owe me an autograph now…!
But seriously, hope you get well again soon, an excellent show. 🙂
Also, is there a newsletter or mailing list or something? If so would like to be added but don’t know how to go about it, not sure if anyone could please help with that?
Thanks, Jade 🙂

Msg from Abeo: There is an old one, but a new site will soon be launched so maybe hold for that.

Dear Derren Brown

I came to see Svengali last night. WEds 23rd, Nottingham. I spent ages trying to get my big wavy hair into good order for the occasion. I straightened it, then I used those big barrel wavy crimpers and lots of the usual product to try and make it look sleek and presentable.

I was one of the audience- possibles in the segment before the interval. How did you distinguish me in front of over a thousand people and possible future video/tv audience?

‘the lady with frizzy hair’.

Derren I have to inform you…

that in context and relevant to the above,

at that moment

OK, always two levels of communication mr. Brown, I notice the noding, and it’s not random and not only that.
I can imagine what will be the show, unbelievable I guess.

Now I really want to go and see the show! I’ve always wanted to see you live Derren because the things you do are amazing and I’m really interested by everything you do. Do you have to be a certain age to watch your shows?

Msg from Abeo: The performance is not suitable for children under 12 years of age.

My bold self shall organise one more viewing. Maybe a bit closer this time. Damn vegetarians must take all the good seats?!¿¡ Wish I had a smart gift this time but I’ve decided a useful gift shall pass from one to another. I guess it wont be long till you watch Red Lights. I wonder if any of the characters are based on you.. Maybe the Dead Bird, Doctor Tom B guy. Hehe. Stay awesome. Mark x

Hello. I would like to inform you that you have a great mind! And do some awesome stuff with it. Nice show, it’s entertaining. I want your books, because honestly… I am forming my own belief system and I believe that some of the things you’ve done have destroyed my previous previous previous ones (note previous, as I’ve been trying to find the ‘truth’ for a long long time lol and I keep coming across new information, and new levels of awareness to what’s actually going on with all these freaks in my life lol) … So props to you and your work. It is well.

Hi, my girlfriend and i recently missed out on going to see derrens show in glasgow despite having booked tickets 6 months previously, this was due to a series of unfortunate events and topped off by missing a great show that we had been looking forward to for a long time. We were unable to attain any refunds and i have been lookin for a way towrite to derren to tell him the story in hopes that he could possibly write my girlfriend Aimee a 21st birthday message to go some way to making up for a bad year for her? Any feedback would be fantastic!

Been wanting to see you live for over 7 years now. Finally today I booked my ticket, plus a Belgian friend who only discovered you 2 days ago is coming too.

See you on July 27th

In my mind which includes many things you are a little like the christ…I have been a tad fanatic about your material in the past, so much so it has informed my personality. Thankyou.. Keep up the damn good work. =)

Not sure where else to ask this, but received a email the other day telling me that I could view DB shows on Vimeo site. I have joined their but all I can see is trailers of DB shows, how do I the entire show?

Hey. I want to subscribe to the blog in general (not just one blog post), but can’t see if this is possible. Is there a way to do this or do I just have to pay attention myself 😛

Sorry for posting this under here, didn’t find any e-mail adress just for the blog section. Also: Svengali was great! Can’t wait for the DVD 😀

Thanks 🙂

Would love to get to London to see this but looks like the dates are no good for me with London being so far away, will this be available for sale on DVD or shown on TV?

Msg from Abeo: It will be on TV, not set date as to when it will be shown yet.

Went to see Derren a few days ago in London, he was magnificent! Second time i’ve seen him live and both times i’ve been blown away by how much energy and enthusiasm he puts into his performance, especially as his voice was poorly this time. I was gutted that it meant he couldn’t come out and sign but i’m glad he didn’t if he was feeling bad. Just hope he can have a hugely deserved break after the London run with time to recover because he must be exhausted. Would like to send him many get well again soon wishes!
Know it’s silly to ask, but I handmade Derren a card and sent it to the theatre, it would have got there on the 8th, was wondering if he got it? Would mean a lot. 🙂

Loving the love for Derren in these comments, he’s awesome.
Thanks for an amazing show Derren! Love Leanne X
