The Illusion starts in just a week, and it's going to make quite the finale to our 2007-2008 season. With a set by Frank McCullough, costumes by Cloe Fox Wind, lighting by Jerry Forsyth, and sound by Jorge Cousineau, it's a stunning piece of artwork. Of course, what director Harriet Power has done The Illusion is also pretty magical. You'll laugh, you'll cry, you'll want to slap Carl ... you'll love it!
