Refreshing, Quirky, Great acting, Entertaining, Clever

See it if you know the story & would appreciate a fresh view on a small stage with minimal, yet effective staging by a dedicated cast in good costumes

Don't see it if you are in love with the musical or do not like new adaptations of the classic story as this one jumps around a bit.

Exquisite, Great staging, Confusing

See it if into a superb presentation of a travelogue classic on a small, empty stage; great acting, highlighting some less known portions.

Don't see it if well -- the translation to English worked only to a point, and the choice of scenes felt more choppy than serving a cohesive arc.

The New York Times
March 2nd, 2006
For a previous production

"Impossible dreamers seeking windmills at which to tilt will need to look elsewhere than 'El Quijote,' Repertorio Español's cheerful but uneven dramatization of the Cervantes classic...Staged by Jorge Alí Triana, the bare-stage commedia-style theatrics allow for a lovely opening sequence as well as some broad clowning. But these scenes sometimes disguise a lack of purpose and wholeness."
