Strange things happen when you wander into a magician’s cave.
Pridamant, in search of his estranged son, desperately seeks the help of a mysterious sorcerer. But Pridamant is not prepared for what the old hermit reveals. Both hilarious and moving, The Illusion will have audiences enthralled until the very end.
Adapted by one of America’s most celebrated playwrights and screenwriters, Mr. Kushner allows modern audiences to experience the true magic of Corneille’s tale.
Run-time is approximately two hours, including one fifteen-minute intermission.
