Brace your­selves! the grand­est magic show on earth, stops by in Manila this Christ­mas

Philippine Tatler - - CONCIERGE | HOT TICKET -

rom death-de­fy­ing stunts to mind-blow­ing acts, to grand il­lu­sions and tech­ni­cal trick­ery, Im­pos­si­ble pulls out all the stops to be right­fully dubbed “the world’s great­est magic show.” This month the home­grown Bri­tish pro­duc­tion is set to en­chant and amaze Manila au­di­ences. Blur­ring the lines be­tween re­al­ity and imag­i­na­tion, the show dares to do the im­pos­si­ble—en­gag­ing the mind and cap­ti­vat­ing the eyes of any­one who goes out to see it.

In July 2015, Im­pos­si­ble pre­miered at the Noël Coward The­atre in London where it aimed to bring back the glory days of magic. It didn’t take long be­fore it be­came the talk of the town. Two years af­ter its de­but, the pro­duc­tion em­barked on a world tour—so far vis­it­ing Beirut, Dubai, Sin­ga­pore, and now the Philip­pines.

The stun­ning line-up in­cludes six in­ter­na­tional acts fea­tur­ing street ma­gi­cian Mag­i­cal Bones, es­capol­o­gist Ali Cook, dare­devil Bello Nock, il­lu­sion­ist Josephine Lee, bound­ary-break­ing ma­gi­cian Ben Hart, and mind-reader Chris Cox. They will rein­vent an­cient il­lu­sions, putting a mod­ern spin on age-old tricks in fast-paced, breath­tak­ing per­for­mances.

For scep­tics, hold your judg­ment and see the show live on 25 De­cem­ber 2017 to 3 Jan­uary 2018 at the Araneta Coli­seum, Que­zon City. Tick­ets are up for grabs at ticket­net.com.ph
