Solana Beach, Calif. North Coast Repertory Theatre proudly presents THE ILLUSION, hailed by The New York Times as “Fantastical…takes your breath away.” Legendary playwright Tony Kushner (Angels in America) displays his brilliance in this wildly inventive tour de force, which celebrates the magic and illusory nature of theatre. Employing crackling, contemporary language and sheer artistry, Kushner creates this most joyfully theatrical play: a supremely entertaining tale of passion, regret, love and magic. Freely adapted from Pierre Corneille’s L’Illusion Comique, THE ILLUSION was praised by Chicago Theatre Beat as ”hilarious, dreamlike and startlingly poignant”.

David Ellenstein directs Andrew Ableson*, Kandis Chappell*, Christina L. Flynn, John Greenleaf*, John Herzog*, Michael Polak*, Sharon Reitkerk*, and Paul Turbiak* The design team includes Marty Burnett (Scenic Design), Matthew Novotny (Lighting), Melanie Chen (Sound), Elisa Benzoni (Costumes), Andrea Gutierrez (Props) and Peter Herman (Wig & Hair), and Abby Caywood (Costume Design Assistant). Christopher Williams* is the Stage Manager.

*The actor or stage manager appears through the courtesy of Actors’ Equity Association, the union of professional actors and stage managers in the United States.
