criticschoicebucketSet in a prison, the story-within-a-story of Don Quixote’s musical misadventures – rife with love, chivalry, and of course, four-armed giants – unfurls into something more transcendent: a beacon of hope in a dire world. Dream the impossible dream with the wandering hidalgo in this quintessential tale about the resilience of the human spirit, and the power of storytelling when faced with insurmountable odds.

Original Production Staged by Albert Marre • Originally Produced by Albert W. Selden and Hal James • Original Orchestrations by Carlyle W. Hall, Sr.
