Signature Theatre Company celebrated opening night of Tony Kushner's THE ILLUSION last month. The show features Peter Bartlett (The Drowsy Chaperone, "One Life to Live"), Sean Dugan (Next Fall, "Oz"), David Margulies (Conversations With My Father, Wonderful Town), Amanda Quaid (Equus, Banished Children of Eve), Lois Smith (The Trip to Bountiful, "True Blood"), Henry Stram (Inherit the Wind, See What I Wanna See), Merritt Wever ("Nurse Jackie", Tiny Furniture) and Finn Wittrock ("All My Children", The Age of Iron.) In the video below, the cast chats about the production on opening night!
A lawyer, facing mortality, desperate to find the son he drove away years before, travels in the dead of night to a mysterious cave. There he engages the services of a wizard, who conjures up visions of the romantic, adventurous, perilous life the lawyer's son has been living since his father expelled him from home. THE ILLUSION, freely adapted from Pierre Corneille's L'Illusion Comique, is Kushner's most joyfully theatrical play, a wildly entertaining tale of passion and regret, of love, disillusionment and magic.
THE ILLUSION features scenic design by Christine Jones, costume design by Susan Hilferty, lighting design by Kevin Adams, sound design by Bray Poor and fight direction by Rick Sordelet. Production Stage Manager is Paul J. Smith.
