To celebrate the conclusion of its 40th Anniversary Season, Illusion Theater is excited to present a “concert version” of its beloved musical, ALWAYS AND FOREVER, for four performances only, September 24-27!

Set in a 1970s urban neighborhood barbershop, the heartfelt production revealed the ups and downs of all kinds of love through the eyes of four African American men relating their stories through the pop tunes of the 60s and 70s.

Using the designation of a “concert version” Illusion is following the lead of the City Center’s Encores Series in New York, where musicals are presented for only a few performances in a stripped down format, mostly to present the score. Illusion will likewise present a streamlined version of the show including all the songs with the four performers Julius C. Collins III, Dennis Spears, Gevonee Ford and Isaiah Cummings and the always and forever amazing Sanford Moore as musical director and accompanist. Some songs will only be sung, while others will be semi-staged.

Bonnie Morris, Illusion’s Co-Producing Director, said, “It’s an opportunity for us to allow the music of Always and Forever to be heard again. This music holds a special place in our hearts here at Illusion, but each time we have produced this show we see how much this music means to so many people.“ “It’s a fitting end to our extraordinary 40th year,” continued Michael Robins, Illusion’s Founder and other Co-Producing Director. “We wanted to give a gift to the community, and bringing back a show so full of love seemed like the perfect choice.”
