The production will be the first presented by Road Show Theatrical, a newly launched venture between Kilburn Media and The Production Office to produce and fully finance live theatrical productions.
In a statement Kilburn CEO Mark Manuel said, "This is an exciting expansion of the business model of Kilburn Media into live theatrical productions. It further develops our model as a producer and financier of entertainment content, in all of its various formats.”
“For years we have been eager to expand our entertainment expertise to the world of Hollywood, but we want to do it right and most importantly with the right people. We have been fortunate to have found great partners in Kilburn Media,” added The Production Office’s managing partner Gregory Young.
The Illusionists, which has been seen around the globe, is from producers Simon Painter, Tim Lawson and Magicspace Entertainment. The Broadway engagement will mark its U.S. debut.
