Off-Broadway's iLUMINATE Celebrates Easter at New World Stages
All the kids in the audience at iLUMINATE received a special treat after the show on Easter Sunday. Immediately following the spectacular 52-minute performance, where the audience breathlessly followed the ultimate tale of good vs. evil, the kids in the house were tickled to witness the inner Easter Bunny channeled by each iLUMINATE cast member when they suddenly announced that every child would receive a colored egg with a surprise toy inside. The show's stars even took the time to pose for photos with all the kids (along with some of the older kids-at-heart), making the celebration extra memorable for the entire sold-out crowd.
Music, art, dance, and the technological magic of iLuminate brings this extraordinary spectacle to the New York stage, combining mythical elements with adventure and romance, told through dance styles which include contemporary, hip-hop, Latin, and breaking, all using the power of light.
The creative team for iLUMINATE includes Miral Kotb (Director, Choreographer, Author), Athena Sunga (Co-Author), Justin "Kanobby" Keitt (Composer/Musical Director), Christopher Tignor (Composer), John "JRock" Nelson (Choreographer, Scenic & Costume Designer), Dario Mejia (Choreographer), Marcus Allan Cobb (Choreographer, Costume Designer), Rick Sordelet & Christian Kelly-Sordelet (Fight Directors), and Franzblau Media, Inc. (Executive Producer).
