The Augsburg College Theatre Department proudly presents “The Illusion”

February, 2006

Pulitzer Prize-winning writer Tony Kushner, author of “Angels in America,” has freely adapted Corneille’s French neoclassical work, “L’Illusion Comique,” for a contemporary audience.

When a distraught father calls on the great magician Alcandre to conjure images from the life of his missing son, profound discoveries are made about reality and theatrical illusion.

Directed by Martha Johnson, this creative adaptation “offers the exquisite wordplay, beguiling comedy, and fierce intelligence found in all of Kushner’s work.”

Performances: February 9, 10, and 11 at 7:00 p.m.; February 12 at 2:00 p.m.

Ticket Information: $10 general public; $8 ACTC faculty, staff, and students; $2 Augsburg students and children under age 12. For reservations or other information, call 612-330-1257.
