UPDATE: This production has been canceled.

This isn't an illusion! Celtic Illusion, a dance-meets-magic show, will play at New World Stages this summer. The show will have a limited Off-Broadway from June 30 to September 11, with an opening night on July 10.

Celtic Illusion blends contemporary Irish dance numbers with magic and illusions for a high-energy spectacle. The show is created and choreographed by Anthony Street, who also leads the cast of acclaimed dancers from around the world. The company members have performed in famous Irish dance shows like Riverdance and Lord of the Dance.

The Celtic Illusion soundtrack is composed by Angela Little (Baz Luhrmann's Australia), Steve Skinner (Rent), and Emmy Award nominee Michael Londra.

Celtic Illusion premiered in 2011 and has been performed across Australia, Canada, and the United States.
