AT THE HUDSON MAINSTAGE THEATRE IN HOLLYWOOD
14 SHOWS ONLY November 1 - 23, 2014 Illusions is a stunning theatrical portrait of a life shaped by extraordinary events and how the legendary lives of Piaf, Yves Montand, Orson Welles, Fellini, Antonioni, The King of Bulgaria (and Brigitte Bardot's goat) all came together in one artist's life to create a remarkable life story. Illusions is a tale of triumph over adversity, an intimate journey of an epic life well lived as told by only one who could have lived it herself....
Escape into her life of "Illusions" – Irina's new Music CD is revelation in a collection of twelve enduring classics rendered in the lush style of great European artists.
Produced by: Michele Brourman and Stephan Oberhoff
"I am so thankful to Michele and Stephan for letting me interpret these songs the way I felt them, for their incredible musical arrangements, and for the great time we had recording them. For me, the songs were like movies. The microphone became a movie camera, in front of which I was free to act. Their music helped me interpret the meaning and soul of the songs. They are the best!" - Irina
