I am not going to spoil it for anyone (because if anyone had spoilt it for me I would have killed them) but I cannot advise everyone more strongly to GO SEE THIS. Just go, you will be as mind-boggled as I am right now. I haven't had a more enjoyable night out in a long time.

I think Derren Brown is great - so deserving of his West End runs and OIivier.
Haven't seen this show but for on of his live shows before, a couple of us came up with a theory for how the show might have worked and it revolved around a huge sense of theatricality so impressive I think he deserves an acting award.
Want to try to see Infamous.
2014 theatre: Blithe Spirit (Gielgud)  Booked: Dirty Rotten Scoundrels (Savoy)  Waterbabies (Curve)  View from the Bridge (Young Vic)  Birdland (Royal Court).

I saw svengali a couple of years ago and thought that was impressive - this is SO much better!

Pity you have to go to Facebook to win tickets on the WoS page.

I don't think you have to have an account though. I wasn't logged in that I can remember.

Not asking those who've seen it to give anything away, per se (I'm a big fan of magic, so I am well aware that to do so is to ruin it all!) but can I ask: yes or no, is there any gory stuff in this show? (Some of Brown's stuff I find really intriguing but other aspects are quite nauseating, so I'd quite like to gauge the level of ickiness before I booked for a live show!)

Yes. There is a part that involves blood - that's all I'll say. It's pretty gory but nothing out of the ordinary for his show.

Yes, but it goes on for less than 5 minutes.

...and is admitted to being a conjuring trick whilst making a potent point at the time.
