THREE of the stars of the world’s biggest and most dangerous magic show, Impossible, popped into the Evening News office yesterday to astound and amaze.

TV mind-reader Chris Cox and illusionist Magical Bones were joined by “Dangerman” Jonathan Goodwin and his emperor scorpion in a display of their unique talents.

The trio were in town to launch the show which tours to the Playhouse, where it will run from March 15 to 19.

Direct from the West End of London, Impossible fuses death-defying stunts, technological trickery, grand stage illusions and close-up magic in a fast-paced breath-taking performance that reinvents the biggest illusions in history.

Director Lloyd Wood said: “We are bringing together masters of their
 craft from the UK and abroad to demonstrate their exceptional skill, dexterity and fearlessness presenting original and inventive stage magic.

“Exploring the feats of the impossible with grand illusion, sleight of hand, daredevil escapology and mind-blowing mentalism we aim to inspire and thrill our audiences from all around the UK whilst taking them on a journey through the light and dark of magic, mysticism and mystery across the ages.”
