With London Theatres being forced to close again for the foreseeable future, Gag Reflex and Ben Hart are keen to give everyone in the area some magic to look forward to in the new year. Britain’s Got Talent 2019 finalist, West End star and multi award-winning magician Ben is therefore excited to announce that he will be bringing his mind-blowingly unique blend of magic to London’s Leicester Square Theatre as part of his debut solo tour next year.
Expect Ben’s most mind-blowing and exciting magic in a show that shines a light on magic, life, the universe and the darkest corners of your imaginations. With the simplest of props, using the objects and minds of the audience, Ben Hart conjures an altogether new kind of magic.
Funny, subversive, often dark and always amazing, Ben has established a reputation for always creating wonderfully alternative magic. At the age of 16 he was awarded the prestigious Young Magician of the Year award by the Magic Circle and is one of the youngest ever members of The Inner Magic Circle (with gold star) – the highest level of the famous Magic Circle. He was nominated for the Time Out and Soho Theatre Cabaret Award in 2013.
The star of Killer Magic, Ben Hart’s Life Hacks Hoax (both BBC3), Now You See It (BBC1), The One Show, Len Goodman’s Partners in Rhyme and countless other TV appearances in the UK and abroad (his work has taken him to America, Australia, across Europe, The Middle east, Asia and Africa).
When not performing magic, Ben invents writes and directs magic tricks and illusions for tv, theatre and film. His ideas have been performed by some of the top magicians working in the world and he has designed illusions for The Royal Shakespeare Company, The Old Vic, The Globe, The Hampstead Theatre and was the mind behind the acclaimed special effects in the west end production of The Exorcist.
Ben has also performed as part of Impossible, one of the world’s biggest magic shows and appeared in the West End for two consecutive years with the show.
Ben Hart will be at Leicester Square Theatre on Sunday 2nd May at 7pm, details and tickets can be found here.
