NOMA and The NOLA Project Present “Don Quixote”-New Show Added!
Fri, May 27th, 2016 at 7:00 PM - 8:30 PM
NOMA and The NOLA Project have partnered again to present another production in the Sydney and Walda Besthoff Sculpture Garden. Big Easy Award winning playwright Pete McElligott brings a classic novel to new and hilarious life with Miguel de Cervantes’ classic tale Don Quixote.
This world premiere is a comedy of old folly mixed with new adventures. By Pete McElligott, this new tale follows the insanely idealistic knight and the utterly practical Sancho Panza as they encounter the world. Together they discover life might be safer when approached realistically, but it’s so much richer when the craziest of dreams are followed. As Quixote instructs the audience on how life should be lived, our fantastical knight takes on everything from bandits and romance to grade school math. He rarely wins, but he never loses hope. Once again, this transporting tale will allow audiences to experience NOMA’s iconic sculpture garden in fresh and exciting ways.
This production is supported in part by a grant from the New Orleans Theatre Association (NOTA).
