Claire Danes, Hugh Dancy, Neil Gaiman, David Cross Welcome Derren Brown to New York
Atlantic Theater Company celebrated the opening night of Olivier Award winner Derren Brown's Secret at the Linda Gross Theater on May 16. The production is scheduled to run through June 25.
Secret marks the American theatrical debut of Brown, a U.K.-based artist whose works have played sold-out runs in the West End and earned two Olivier Awards. It is written by Brown with Andy Nyman and Andrew O'Connor, with direction by O'Connor and Nyman.
The show is described as follows in a press release: "Be part of the startling world of mind-reading, suggestion, and psychological illusion at the hands of U.K. phenomenon Derren Brown. This spellbinding theatrical experience challenges us — in the most jaw-dropping way — to take a closer look at the stories and beliefs that guide our lives."
