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.

Guests also included actor David Cross.

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."

Andrew O'Connor, Derren Brown, and Andy Nyman are the creators of Secret.
