Legend has it that Sidney Poitier was so moved by the story of The Lilies of the Field that he waived his usual salary -- not knowing he would later win worldwide fame (and an Oscar) for his portrayal of the hard-headed Homer Smith. From the moment it was published as a novel by William E. Barret, The Lilies of the Field has had a special effect on people. Experience it yourself when Open Window Theatre presents this heart-warming stage adaptation. Headed west in search of a new beginning in the mid-1950s, black Southern Baptist itinerant worker Homer Smith encounters a group of Catholic nuns scratching out an existence in the remote Southwest. Mother Maria Marthe, convinced that Homer was sent to them by God to build them a chapel, persuades him to stay (without pay) and take on this seemingly impossible task. The faith of all are tested, proving that friendships and miracles alike come in all forms. Learn More

What a talented cast! All four performers put incredible effort and enthusiasm into their portrayals of men of the 70s, reflecting on love and relationships, and they do it through great renditions of 60s and 70s R & B favorites. You will be humming, clapping, and swaying throughout the performance. See it, and you won't be disappointed.
After fifteen years of audience requests, Always & Forever returns to Illusion’s stage. In this hit musical revue, four African American men share their stories of love through popular R&B songs of the ‘60’s and ‘70’s, such as “Betcha By Golly Wow,” “Can’t Get Enough of Your Love, Baby,” “I Want You Back,” “Signed, Sealed, Delivered,” “Everybody Plays a Fool,” and many more.
