IMPOSSIBLE, the most dangerous show the UK has ever seen, has announced the cast for its inaugural UK tour
The show, which will open at Venue Cymru, Llandudno on Friday 29th January 2016, before visiting Southampton, Liverpool, Birmingham, Sunderland, Stoke, Edinburgh and Manchester, features the world’s greatest illusionists live on stage in a magic spectacular.
IMPOSSIBLE’s company include:
Josephine Lee: Grand Illusionist Josephine Lee is one of the fastest in the business, breaking the world record for the most number of illusions performed in 5 minutes with the world-renowned Hans Klok – an accolade held to this day.
Jonathan Goodwin: Daredevil and TV Escapologist Jonathan Goodwin will have audiences on the edge of their seats as he dances with death on stage. After first appearing on Channel 4’s Dirty Tricks, Goodwin has brought his unique stunts to various TV specials including The Seven Stupidest Things to Escape From and How Not to Become Shark Bait! In his television series The Incredible Mr Goodwin, he pushes the limits of possibility with stunts that range from extreme planking to climbing skyscrapers.
Lee Thompson: A sure-fire show-stealer whose trademark trickery bamboozles audiences all over the world, Lee has entertained on stage, screen and TV for over 25 years, starring in shows for Cirque du Soleil, Mugler Follies in Paris, Cannes and Hollywood. From physical comedy, misdirection and stylish sleight-of hand to his less respectable talents, he’ll have you flummoxed with his dexterity.
Magical Bones: South London street conjurer and break-dancing master Magical Bones is considered the world’s best hip-hop magician. Starting out in the music industry as a dancer for the likes of Madonna and the Black Eyed Peas Bones has since turned his attention to wowing the public with expert sleight-of-hand, and there’s no doubt the tricks up his sleeve will stump any seasoned skeptic.
Chris Cox: Clear your mind before award-winning mind reading specialist Chris Cox gets his hands on it! Chris stars in BBC 3’s Killer Magic, bewildering audiences with his unique mind reading talent. Illusion consultant for The Bodyguard, he has flummoxed audiences on stages across the country and continues to control minds in his sell-out tour Fatal Distraction.
Ben Hart: Ben invents unique magic which pushes the boundaries of film, theatre and television and tests the limits of illusion, including decapitation, vanishing and levitation. At the age of 16 he won the Magic Circle’s ‘Young Magician of the Year’ Award and his most recent show The Vanishing Boy sold-out to astonished audiences. He recently starred in BBC 3’s Killer Magic, where his unique and unorthodox approaches amazed audiences across the country.
Fusing death-defying stunts, technological trickery, grand stage illusions and close-up magic in a fast-paced breath-taking performance, IMPOSSIBLE reinvents the biggest illusions in history in the greatest magic show on earth.
Fresh from its ground-breaking run in London’s West End, audience should prepare to be mesmerized and baffled as IMPOSSIBLE brings together world-class performers showing off a stunning range of magical artistry.
