See it if You love magic and/or mentalism and can still be awed by tricks, even when you are aware of how they generally work.
Don't see it if You're a pessimist who'd be put off by 2.5 hours of "magic" and couldn't enjoy yourself because you'd know it's all contrived.
See it if you want to be entertained by magical mind-reading tricks. Well done for what it is but a little disappointing from the Atlantic "Theater"
Don't see it if you're looking for "theater". This is light entertainment.
See it if You like magicians, mentalists and mind-readers or have an open mind and want to try something new. You are OK with not knowing the answers.
Don't see it if You don't like the above and don't want to give a great entertainer a chance to impress you. You don't like audience participation.
See it if ..."mind reading," hypnotisim, and illusion are your thing, this show packs a wallop -- and ends with an impressive finale.
Don't see it if For the cynic-at-heart (like me) and others who have seen similar shows before, it still stands out, but at 2:40, is just too long.
See it if Like magic shows and mind readers.Best in first part where he gave explanations of how he did it. Second half slow but results astonish
Don't see it if If do not like mind and magic shows. Felt manipulated and that had seen versions of some of stunts several times before.
See it if you want a spellbinding and theatrical experience. Can Derren Brown really read minds and predict the future? You need to see for yourself.
Don't see it if you aren't interested in many jaw-dropping psychological illusions. You will leave with more questions than answers.
See it if If you want to see a very different evening at the theater. It was an amazing night but audiences are asked not to share details so go&enjoy
Don't see it if You don't enjoy shows with audience participation (optional)
See it if You are into plotless shows that revolve around " mind reading ", " magic " tricks and.... you got the picture....
Don't see it if You don't easily fall for this kind of shows. The tricks are impressive and too good to be true but the feeling of being manipulated is real
See it if you love Penn & Teller, altho they're funnier, more thought-provoking, and more honest about illusions. DB's a UK star; great op to see him.
Don't see it if you want a take-away. DB is pure entertainment; you go to be gulled. And gulled you will be, until you go home and google….
See it if you like magic, mind reading, psychic ability, parlor tricks; audience participation (lots). don't go expecting a play.
Don't see it if you dislike all of the above, want to see a "real" play (this is sheer entertainment); hate or fear audience participation (there is lots).
See it if you are okay with wondering how this master illusionist pulls off his mind-blowing tricks; he is a master of mind games and you are a pawn..
Don't see it if if you are averse to being manipulated (although that's no secret) and told you will be lied to, but no matter, you fall for it anyway.
See it if you want to see a true world-class master artist in a rare intimate venue. Truly unbelievable, thrilling theatrical experience.
Don't see it if you only want a narrative "play". This is something else entirely. No one is required to participate, but the participation is central to it
See it if you love illusion; you love understanding how humans work, how we communicate, and how we think. Smart, funny, leaves you hungry for more.
Don't see it if you need a plot, you hate illusion, or audience participation. I would mention the significant length, but honestly it goes by in a flash.
See it if It's psychology, mentalism & a pinch of magic, but never cutesy. One revelation follows another for nearly 3 hours & your jaw drops time &..
Don't see it if ...again at his ability to read his audience. Loads of audience participation & even shy people want to be called on by this master artist.
See it if If you like magic and psychic performances. Derren is a true master. But everything is a "SECRET" so go and that's that!!!
Don't see it if SEE IT! SEE IT! Then it won't be a SECRET anymore. Hmmm. Yes it will....Ha!!!
See it if you want almost three hours of terrific entertainment that will make you wonder how in the heck does he do it.
Don't see it if you have no imagination, or if you only like straight plays or musicals. This is a bit different but absorbing.
See it if Best magic and mentalist show you'll ever see. Audience participation. Ending of act 2 after first curtain call is quite amazing!
Don't see it if Can't think of any reason. Many shows are selling out.
See it if you're a fan of Derren Brown or psychological manipulation/hypnotism. I felt like the only person in the audience who hadn't heard of him.
Don't see it if you are not interested in the above, hate audience participation, or are looking for narrative or truth.
See it if You want to see something unlike anything you have seen off-Broadway and if you want to have a truly fun evening at the theater!
Don't see it if You do not like illusionists. But really, this is unlike anything I've seen so even so you should give it a chance.
