Derren Brown: Secret on Broadway Background

Derren Brown: Secret is a magic show which was created by the United Kingdom's own Derren Brown and was written with two other magicians; Andy Nyman and Andrew O’Connor. Brown has had many successes on stages around the world and on television with his illusionist and mentalist magic shows which includes running a sold out show of the same name, in an off- Broadway production by the Atlantic Theatre Company that he headlined in 2017. Brown was also named “Magician of the Year” in 2017 by the Academy of Magical Arts and is hosting this show, making this his Broadway debut. His fellow creators also have their own accolades, Nyman was inducted into the well-respected “Inner Magic Circle” in 2008 and O’Connor has won two “British Academy of Film and Television Arts” Awards (BAFTA) for his work on The Peep Show and The Quick Trick Show. O'Connor also won the prize for “Best Comedy Film” at the world renowned Miami Film Festival in 2016. This magic/ mentalist/ illusionist show is produced by the Emmy award winning and great American filmmaker J.J. Abrams.
