Award-winning illusionist Derren Brown is in town for the next couple of nights.
The man responsible for a string of weird and wonderful TV specials, like predicting the National Lottery numbers (successfully) and Russian Roulette, comes to the Opera House tonight and tomorrow as part of a 128-date tour.
Born in London, Brown studied Law and German at university, and was an aspiring magician for many years before getting his big break in 1999, when he was recommended to Channel 4.
His show, Derren Brown: Mind Control, was an immediate success.
“I love TV, but playing a theatre is really special,” said Brown. “It opens up a new kind of relationship with an audience that doesn’t happen with TV.”
The show Brown is bringing to the Opera House tonight is called Infamous. To try and get tickets, starting at £29.50, go to www.blackpoollive.co.uk
