TV favourite Stephen Mulhern and performer Jonathan Wilkes have created a new show for P&O Cruises featuring Vegas-style illusions and contemporary choreography from one of the world’s most successful creative directors, Paul Domaine.

The new show, “Unbelievable” comes from the team behind “Astonishing.” Stephen Mulhern expressed his excitement and enthusiasm for the show describing it as “A gear change” and “A show which goes full throttle with illusions that have never before been seen in this country. They are truly unbelievable.”

The 45 minute show features a range of new themes including neon, lasers, the court of Marie Antoinette, fire, water and UV. The themes are the backdrop to showcasing a range of illusions including levitation, the Sub Trunk, Sawing in Half, and the TV Screen.

Stephen Mulhern will interact with the audience through video, using his trademark humour and charm. The performance also includes an interactive audience trick which will be different each night.

Stephen Mulhern continued: “I am so proud of Unbelievable. It is the culmination of hard work, creativity, and collaboration with my good friend Jonny Wilkes. We wanted to create a new show that would wow the audiences with amazing magic, stunning visuals, fantastic costumes and the coolest choreography. We have put together a fantastic cast and crew, the best of the best, who share our vision and
passion. We can’t wait to share Unbelievable as we sail around the world. It is a show that will make you laugh, gasp, and say ‘how did they do that?’ It is a show that lives up to its name: Unbelievable.”

A specially curated box of magic tricks and illusions has been created by Stephen Mulhern and will be available to buy exclusively on board.

Unbelievable will be performed by the Headliners Theatre cast on P&O Cruises ships Britannia, Azura, Ventura, Arcadia and Aurora from this summer.
