Get iLuminated

Date: Monday, November 10

The fantastic glow-in-the-dark dancers iLuminate are performing their theatrical show Artist of Light this Monday at New World Stages. Before they hit the big time, iLuminate got their break as finalists on “America’s Got Talent.” The group has since gone on to work with some of the biggest names in music, like Christina Aguilera, The Black Eyed Peas and Cobra Starship. Artist of Light tells the story of a talented artist named Jacob. Despite his talent, Jacob is very insecure until he discovers a magic paintbrush that brings his character to life! The show begins at 7:00 p.m. and tickets are going for $102 and up online.
