Delusion is an incredible immersive theatrical production in Southern California. It is located at the beautiful and historic Phillips Mansion this season. One of the things I found especially unique was the integration of the actual historic facts into the play which included making the Phillips’ family characters in the show.
Delusion is a unique ghost story in which you the audience members play an interactive role. I was actually given a messenger bag with an important artifact to carry throughout the performance and use at key moments. You encounter many characters and scenes spanning about an hour, however give yourself plenty of time to explore before and after your showtime. Also be sure to have a cell phone with you so they can text you when they are ready for your party to enter the experience.
The set design, story, props, acting and so forth are always impeccable at Delusion events and this year was no exception. You can see a sneak peak into the mansion in the photos below.
There is a VIP experience that you can do upstairs prior to or after your main event. It’s a fun and interesting exploration of a few additional rooms and one additional character interaction that is limited to 4 people at a time. Leave ample time for waiting in line upstairs, having a drink and seeing some magic by the talented Jimmy H.
