It will begin performances at the West End's Shaftesbury Theatre June 8, prior to an official opening June 13, for a season that is booking to July 16. According to a press statement, Brown professes that he loves writing and performing on stage more than anything else, and promises an evening of mind-melting based around audience participation. He is quoted saying, "More than that I wouldn’t want to say. I ask audiences to keep the contents of the show a secret so as not to spoil it for others, and I have to do the same. But I hope it's fun and freaky and a great night out."
Svengali is written by Derren Brown and Iain Sharkey with Stephen Long and produced by Michael Vine, Andrew O'Connor & Corrie McGuire for Objective Talent Management. It is directed by Polly Findlay, with designs by Will Bowen, lighting by Matt Eagland and sound by Colin Pink.
