Magic Show Impossible returns to the Noel Coward
A show that is billed as "the world’s greatest magic show" will return to the Noël Coward Theatre for a limited seven week season this summer. Impossible will feature the very best magicians and tricksters from around the world, and will open on 13 July 2016, following previews from 6 July, running to 27 August 2016. The show previously enjoyed a run at the same venue during the summer of last year.
Impossible will be directed by Lloyd Wood, with set design by Andrew D. Edwards, lighting by Howard Harrison, video design by 59 Productions, sound by Gareth Owen and music by Ryan Martin. The producers are Jamie Hendry Productions and Gavin Kalin Productions.
The show is described as "fusing death-defying stunts, technological trickery, grand stage illusions and close-up magic in a fast-paced breath-taking performance" and the acts will again include Chris Cox, Jonathan Goodwin and Ben Hart, plus new cast members Josephine Lee, Sabine Van Diemen and Magical Bones.
Producer Jamie Hendry spoke about the show's return: "We were overwhelmed by the welcome that London audiences showed Impossible last year and are delighted to be returning to the Noël Coward Theatre with a bigger show than ever before. I’m proud to welcome two of the world’s leading female magicians, Josephine Lee and Sabine van Diemen to the company, and am excited about seeing audiences’ reactions to their stunning performances”.
