BGT Star Aaron Crow set to join the cast of Impossible in the West End
The producers of hit West End magic spectacular IMPOSSIBLE have announced that Aaron Crow, star of Britain’s Got Talent, will join the show for the final week of its run on Monday 24th August. The hit magic show finishes its limited run at the Noel Coward Theatre on 29th August, before embarking on a worldwide tour.
Aaron Crow, world renowned magician and swordsman, will astound and amaze audiences with his cutting edge tricks and daredevil stunts, tackling swords and crossbows whilst blind-folded! Crow’s unique and compelling approach to magic fuses suspense and dangerous stunts with a winning charm and explores the positive theme of facing and overcoming our fears. His sensational style took him to the semi-finals on Britain’s Got Talent where his nail-biting stunt of chopping a pineapple in half on top of Ant McPartlin’s head, while blind-folded, had audiences on the edge of their seats. Simon Cowell remarked: “That’s a great act. I love the idea of watching something where there is a possibility that someone could actually die”
On joining the show, Aaron Crow said: “I’m thrilled and honoured to be joining Impossible alongside such a talented group of illusionists and magicians, and looking forward to bringing some of my magic to the West End for the last week of the run”
