Award-winning magicians to bring ‘Wonderment’ to Palace Theatre this summer
The world-leading illusionists will perform in the West End for six weeks.
A brand new magic show Wonderment will open at the Palace Theatre this summer, set to astonish audiences with its death-defying stunts. Wonderment is at the Palace Theatre from 16 July - 30 August. Wonderment: Magic and Illusion is now called Wonderville.
According to press material, "Wonderment brings together some of the greatest illusionists live on stage in breath-taking displays of magic and illusion that will electrify, surprise and delight."
Wonderment will be led by Chris Cox and Josephine Lee. Cox previously worked as the magic and illusions assistant for Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, while Lee competed and reached the semin finals on Britain's Got Talent in 2017. Together, they've both starred in The Illusionists which ran at the Shaftesbury Theatre in 2019, as well as Broadway and global incarnations. Five further artists to star in Wonderment are to be announced.
Wonderment is directed by Annabel Mutale Reed. Speaking about the show, they said: It's an absolute privilege to be creating Wonderment with world class magicians, who are bringing their greatest illusions to the West End this summer. Audiences have been making memories at The Palace Theatre for 130 years... we are delighted to be filling its stage with a vibrant 2021 twist on an old-fashioned variety show. Wonderment is an exhilarating, mind-bending show that really has to be seen to be believed."
Wonderment tickets are on sale now.
