Ambitious, Dated, Funny, Quirky, Delightful

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."
