Photo Flash: Jaleel White Visits Off-Broadway's iLUMINATE at New World Stages
The cast of iLUMINATE received a special backstage visit from Jaleel White after their July 18th performance. White, who shot to superstardom as Steve Urkel on ABC''s long-running "Family Matters," was so overwhelmed by the show that he felt compelled to share his heartfelt enthusiasm with the entire company.
The Off-Broadway hit iLUMINATE, now in its second smash year, yesterday put a new block of seats on sale through January 4, 2015 at New World Stages. iLuminate wowed the nation with their groundbreaking light suits and innovative dance moves on NBC''s "America''s Got Talent," where the dance-in-the-dark sensation was selected as one of the hit show''s top finalists after judge Piers Morgan called them "The Best New Act in America!"
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.
