Don Quixote Takes New York is an adaptation of Miguel de Cervantes's novel Don Quixote. This piece focuses on the plight of Quixote — either succumb to the bitterness of despair or let loose the wings of the imagination. Don Quixote Takes New York is an intuitive voyage that transports the audience through Quixote's emotions, from memories of his past home life to when he moves out of his familiar surroundings and travels through the city, seeing the new perspective this unexplored world offers him. In the reimagining of this classic text, with puppets, dance, and music, we follow Quixote while he explores New York City in his quest for love, honor, liberty, and justice for all.
