Delusion Delayed

Sad new: The debut of Delusion as a year-round event location has been indefinitely delayed since a deal could not be reached to lease the location. The announcement was made by Delusion’s creator-producer Jon Braver, via email, Facebook, and website post:

Dearest Delusionals,

We haven’t had a moment alone in some time now. I’ve wanted to reach out for awhile, but, in the immortal words of Homer Simpson, “….there’s just too much pressure, what with my job, the kids, traffic snarls, political strife at home and abroad. But I promise, the second all those things go away, we’ll have sex.” Well…that last part may be inaccurate, but I’m here now! Much going on… but not in the way you think. Let me fill you in, but keep it short.

The year round show is on hold. The venue lease (and owner) unfortunately fell through. I could go into painfully boring detail here… but no one wants that. Needless to say, I was…. disappointed. 


For you see, there are other options we’re exploring. I am terribly sorry about all this waiting, but please hang in there. You’ll be updated as we learn more. 

Onward and upward my friends. Nothing great comes easy. And nothing will stop the beloved passion project that is Delusion from returning in 2016. 

Playng My Part,
Jon Braver – Creator/Writer/Director – Delusion

Delusion: A Haunted Play is a novel combination of interactive theatre and haunted house. Since its debut in October 2010, the haunt has consistently been one of the best Halloween attractions in Los Angeles; however, the show went missing in action during October 2015, while Braver worked on the deal to find a year-round location, which would host not only the play but also screenings, live music, and magic shows.

The opening had been tentatively schedule for early this year.
