With Tejano Music and Texas Soul, Quixote Nuevo Is a Must-See Play This Friday Night

Alley Theatre will present the highly-anticipated production of Quixote Nuevo from January 17th to February 9th. Don’t miss this event on opening night this Friday!

Directed by Austin-based KJ Sanchez and starring Sesame Street’s Emilio Delgado, Quixote Nuevo is an inspiring reimagining of Cervantes’ Don Quixote by celebrated playwright Octavio Solis. Set in a fictional, modern-day Texas border town, Quixote and his sidekick embark on an adventure in search of a long-lost love. Infused with imagination, Tejano music, and true Texas soul, Quixote Nuevo shows the challenges of living in this modern world all the while in pursuit of a lost dream.

Chased by roving bands of guitar-playing Calacas, Quixote always leads with his heart in a world of people led astray by their brains. Quixote Nuevo is a triumphant celebration and a rich, contemporary, theatrical fable that has been created anew by Solis, one of the storytellers behind the Disney/Pixar film Coco. The play is a co-production with Hartford Stage and Huntington Theater Company.

“Revelatory…an instant classic! Inspired, heartbreaking and very funny.” – San Francisco Chronicle 

“Exuberantly directed...pulses with the earthly poetry of the Southwest.” – Bay Area News Group
