“An enthrallingly baffling one-mentalist show that turns out to have so many meanings that you soon stop counting! Derren manages to make us believe that all 200 or so people in the audience are psychically connected. He plunges into the deepest recesses of his volunteers’ thoughts, with results that have you slapping your forehead.”
Ben Brantley, The New York Times
“It was a treat to feel baffled and bamboozled by something that had nothing to do with politics, and a salutary reminder that even in a disenchanted age, some mysteries remain.”
Alexis Soloski, The Guardian
“It’s hard not to be at least a bit bowled over! Secret is enough to make even the most hardened skeptic think twice.”
Jenna scherer, time out new york
“Thoroughly winning! Dazzling! It’s not vegas glitzy but his new show plays as pure entertainment.”
Michael Giltz, Huffington Post
