Described as the "acknowledged master of psychological illusion," this is Brown's sixth show since 2003. His West End debut show, Derren Brown Live, was also seen at the Palace Theatre, and since then he has toured every year and has been seen by theatre audiences estimated to be over one million people. According to press materials, "touring is still his favorite thing to do." His shows Something Wicked This Way Comes in 2006 and Svengali in 2012 both won Olivier Awards.
The new show Infamous is described as a more "personal" show. It reunites him with collaborator and friend Andy Nyman, who directs and has co-written the show with Brown.
In a press statement, Brown commented, "We abandoned the template that had won us a couple of Oliviers over the years for a very different feel. It's important to us that the shows feel like something you can't find anywhere else in theatre or entertainment: not even my own previous efforts. I'm really excited by the result. The show is a secret so I'm not giving away what's in it, but it's a psychological roller-coaster based around audience participation. And it's got a real heart to it. The response on tour has been incredible, it's all such a treat."
Infamous is produced by Michael Vine, Andrew O'Connor & Corrie McGuire for Objective Talent Management.
