Because what better time to remember how much theatre means to us all...
by Tony Kushner
freely adapted from Pierre Corneille's L'Illusion Comique
directed by Michael Barakiva
As a magician shows a father glimpses of his long-lost son in wisps of magic and theatricality, Kushner's adaptation of this classical French masterpiece reminds us of the pulsing, undeniable, heart-aching importance of theatre.
