New performing space


September 19, 1996|By J. Wynn Rousuck

Although the opening production of its 10th anniversary season is "The Illusion," Fell's Point Corner Theatre is proud to boast that it's no illusion that the theater is finally inaugurating its new, first-floor, handicapped-accessible performing space. Appropriately, Fell's Point Corner has chosen a Baltimore premiere to introduce the new theater, which can hold up to 25 more seats and has a larger stage than its second-floor counterpart.

"The Illusion" is freely adapted by Tony Kushner, author of "Angels in America," from Pierre Corneille's 17th-century "L'Illusion Comique," a play about love, loss and magic. "We chose it because it is about the theater being a metaphor for life," said Beverly Sokal, president of the theater's board.

"The Illusion" opens tonight at Fell's Point Corner Theatre, 251 S. Ann St., at 7 p.m. with a champagne gala. Tickets are $25. Show times for the rest of the run are 8 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays and 2 p.m. Sundays, through Oct. 27. Tickets are $10 and $11. Call (410) 276-7837.
