Here is a look at the production:
Tony Kushner's The Illusion, With Peter Bartlett, Lois Smith and David Margulies, Plays the Signature
Here's how Signature characterizes the play: "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."
Signature Theatre Company's current season also featured the first New York revival of Tony Kushner’s Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award-winning epic work, Angels in America: A Gay Fantasia on National Themes, directed by Michael Greif, which extended four times and played its final performance at the Peter Norton Space on April 24. The New York premiere of Kushner's The Intelligent Homosexual's Guide to Capitalism and Socialism With a Key to the Scriptures, also directed by Michael Greif and co-produced with The Public Theater in association with The Guthrie Theater, is currently playing at The Public.
