The production, which began on March 17 and runs through April 26th, has been called “a spirited production with top tier talent” by Shakespearances.com, and “a production people will be talking about for years to come” by the Baltimore Post-Examiner. Following the story of knight errant Don Quixote, Director Alan Paul‘s combination of sharp wit, moving music, and poignant storytelling brings new life to the classic tale by Miguel de Cervantes.
