Some of the world’s greatest illusionists will be united in Impossible – a fast-paced stage spectacular featuring death-defying stunts, technological trickery, grand stage illusions and close-up magic that coming to the Palace Theatre in March.
Fresh from its hit run in London’s West End, Impossible reinvents the biggest illusions in history and audiences should prepare to be mesmerized and baffled by the performers’ stunning range of magical artistry, reuniting original West End cast members in the process.
From nail-biting escapology to amazing mind-reading, jaw-dropping sleight of hand to grand illusions, Impossible showcases some of the world’s greatest magical talent.
Josephine Lee: Grand Illusionist Josephine Lee is one of the fastest in the business, breaking the world record for the most number of illusions performed in 5 minutes with the world-renowned Hans Klok – an accolade held to this day.
Jonathan Goodwin: Daredevil and TV Escapologist Jonathan Goodwin will have audiences on the edge of their seats as he dances with death on stage. After first appearing on Channel 4’s Dirty Tricks, Goodwin has brought his unique stunts to various TV specials including The Seven Stupidest Things to Escape From and How Not to Become Shark Bait! In his television series The Incredible Mr Goodwin, he pushes the limits of possibility with stunts that range from extreme planking to climbing skyscrapers.
Lee Thompson: A sure-fire show-stealer whose trademark trickery bamboozles audiences all over the world, Lee has entertained on stage, screen and TV for over 25 years, starring in shows for Cirque du Soleil, Mugler Follies in Paris, Cannes and Hollywood. From physical comedy, misdirection and stylish sleight-of hand to his less respectable talents, he’ll have you flummoxed with his dexterity.
Magical Bones: South London street conjurer and break-dancing master Magical Bones is considered the world’s best hip-hop magician. Starting out in the music industry as a dancer for the likes of Madonna and the Black Eyed Peas Bones has since turned his attention to wowing the public with expert sleight-of-hand, and there’s no doubt the tricks up his sleeve will stump any seasoned sceptic.
Chris Cox: Clear your mind before award-winning mind reading specialist Chris Cox gets his hands on it! Chris stars in BBC 3’s Killer Magic, bewildering audiences with his unique mind reading talent. Illusion consultant for The Bodyguard, he has flummoxed audiences on stages across the country and continues to control minds in his sell-out tour Fatal Distraction.
Ben Hart: Ben invents unique magic which pushes the boundaries of film, theatre and television and tests the limits of illusion, including decapitation, vanishing and levitation. At the age of 16 he won the Magic Circle’s ‘Young Magician of the Year’ Award and his most recent show The Vanishing Boy sold-out to astonished audiences. He recently starred in BBC 3’s Killer Magic, where his unique and unorthodox approaches amazed audiences across the country.
