Description

Poet of the Impossible is a beautifully crafted weaving of magic and words created by Scots-Italian magician and playwright, Lorenzo Novani. This one-of-a-kind show, which has been touring the UK over the last year with stops at Brighton Fringe, Carlisle Fringe and most recently the International Magic Festival at The Scottish Storytelling Centre, features both visual and mentalistic impossibilities weaved together by stories and poetry. The words enchant, the magic defies explanation (and gravity). 'Always engrossing and the finale is miraculous. Excellent’ (FringeReview.co.uk). ***** (BroadwayBaby.com).

It was an ok show, but nothing exceptional.

The few bits of poetry reading was ok, but there was too much down time for audience participation, giving the show a very slow pace.

Not recommended, especially if you are looking to see magic as there is very little of it on show.
