A TOP rated magician and illusionist is heading to the area with his new show.
After rave reviews for his show and a nomination for the 2013 Time Out & Soho Theatre award, magician and illusionist Ben Hart is bringing his critically acclaimed sell out show ‘The Outsider’ to Stafford on Friday, July 4.
A spokesman for the show said: “Directed by the award-winning Anthony Owen, the man behind Derren Brown’s impactful TV programmes, ‘The Outsider’ is a hugely entertaining and original show that brims full of magic, brilliant sleight of hand, and sensational special effects and illusions.
“Ben’s performance is made ever more charismatic as it is interwoven with a biographical narrative that alludes to his lifelong feelings of detachment.
“An awe inspiring and gripping spectacle from start to finish.
“Ben will also be staring in brand new BBC3 programme Killer Magic, in which five young magicians compete against each other in a series of tasks, in the hope of avoiding having to face a killer trick - a notorious illusion or magic trick that has jeopardised the lives of those who have tried to perform it though out history.
“Through his talent and powerful story telling, Ben has already won many prestigious awards including the highest award attainable through examination, the ‘Associate of The Inner Magic Circle with Silver Star Award.’
“He also scooped the Magic Circle’s ‘Young Magician of the Year’ in 2007. Ben has also appeared on television shows, The Sorcerer’s Apprentice (BBC1) and The Dare (BBC1).”
