Press For 'Don Quixote Takes New York'
"An adaptation of an adaptation, it sets Iván Cardozo and Beatriz Caballero’s puppet theater version of Cervantes’s novel in New York City, where Don Quixote and Sancho Panza are trying to shield the Statue of Liberty from a villain known as the Orange Knight. Although adults may detect political satire here, young theatergoers can have fun just watching the onstage adventure" - Laurel Graeber, The New York Times
