About the show

This eye-popping spectacle by iLuminate (of 'America's Got Talent' fame) returns to Off-Broadway. Go on an action-filled journey of light and sound with dancers who thrive to the beat of the city.  More…

Music, art, and the technological magic of iLuminate bring you a story of adventure and romance conveyed by an array of dance styles and amazing light-up costumes.

Dated, Disappointing, Cliched, Insipid, Overrated

See it if you enjoy watching teenagers hop around while wearing glow in the dark clothing. They are very enthusiastic.

Don't see it if you are expecting a play. Plot and characters are suggested but not realized. This is a dance performance and even the dance is unimpressive

Confusing, Original, Dizzying

See it if You have kids to entertain and enjoy talented, energetic dancers and fun light technology effects. I liked the balletic movements & tango.

Don't see it if You don't like a confusing uninteresting plot with pretty loud music and much of the dancing robotic and hip hop.

Disappointing, Dizzying

See it if You like performance art.

Don't see it if Can't stand black light and flashing lights. I felt I was getting sick or nauseous after awhile. I had to leave after a half hour.

Entertaining, Clever, Delightful, Fun, Great singing

See it if you liked Blue Man Group, De La Guardia, sensationalism, great dancing, top 40 music, high energy.

Don't see it if you want a plot line, you are a little kid because it is dark and scary.

Overrated, Slow, Nice concept

See it if You're into hip hop and special effects

Don't see it if You like to see real dancing rather than special effects that make things look cool.

Dizzying

See it if Kids would like it

Don't see it if Lights make you dizzy

"'iLuminate' creates a magical theatrical experience that defies a theatrical genre. The story line is a battle between light and dark, creativity vs. chaos, filled with an overwhelming overabundance of talent. The plot line is rather inept, with a man trying to find himself through art…For a com...

"The fluorescent outlines of the costumes leave no room for mistakes in the choreography, and the performers didn’t disappoint. Hip-hop, jazz, ballet and contemporary dance blend together seamlessly to catchy songs, a lot of which are pop music hits...It is a great visual concept but it needs to ...

"You’ll be mesmerized by extraordinary special effects and exemplary choreographed dance moves in a constant frenzied pace...The narrative does not clearly emerge and dialogue is practically non-existent in the show; yet you still follow the story through interpretative dance. And that in itself ...
