Author and playwright Octavio Solis will talk with arts writer Frank Rizzo about Quixote Nuevo, a reimagining of the first modern novel, Don Quixoteby Miguel de Cervantes.
The show opens the new season at Hartford Stage, running September 19 through October 13.
Quixote Nuevo is set in the fictional modern-day border town of La Plancha, Texas, where Don Quixote loses himself in stories of chivalrous escapades and embarks upon a quest of imagination, adventure, and Tejano music. Along the way he recruits a hapless but trusty sidekick in his search for lost love. As the community wrestles with containing Quixote’s fantasies, he, his family and friends discover the joys and perils of being the hero of your own story.
