About This Show

Tony Award-winning director-choreographer Justin Peck expands upon Sufjan Stevens’s acclaimed concept album Illinois in a bold new music-theater production featuring virtuosic dancers, singers, and musicians and a narrative crafted with Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Jackie Sibblies Drury. Peck reimagines the album as a music-theater production that combines dance, folk storytelling, and live music with a cast of dancers, singers, and musicians, featuring new arrangements by composer and pianist Timo Andres ranging in style from folk and indie rock to ambient electronics to joyous marching bands. Peck and Drury’s coming-of-age story takes audiences on a journey from the American countryside to the urban streets of New York City, the edges of the cosmos, and beyond.
