Derren Brown: Secret extended 3 weeks in NYC

Postby Richard Hatch » May 10th, 2017, 12:44 pm

Derren Brown's off-Broadway show has been extended 3 weeks, through June 25, even before its official opening on May 16th (currently still in previews). What a great time to be within striking distance of NYC for mystery entertainment fans, with Derek DelGaudio's show there at least through early September and now Derren Brown at least through June 25th!

And a quote (near the end of the article) that sums up the best performers:

Brown says, “We like to watch human beings struggle, not god-like figures achieve anything just by flicking their fingers… Whatever you see, whether it’s a magician or an actor or a dancer, you kind of want to see a human being. You want to relate to a human being.”
