“Make room for Quixote Nuevo,” raves The Boston Globe. This inspired adaptation—set to the spirited sounds of Tejano music—reimagines Cervantes’ beloved knight Don Quixote as a brilliant, bilingual professor whose fantasies take center stage in a Texas border town. Along with his trusty sidekick, this modern-day Quixote journeys through the desert, tilting at patrol drones instead of windmills as he searches for long-lost love. With humor and pageantry, Quixote Nuevo breathes new life into one of literature’s most vibrant characters to ask the classic question: when times are tough, how do we keep dreaming?

Quixote Nuevo is sponsored by Doug and Lorraine Bibby.

Quixote Nuevo runs approximately 2 hours and 35 minutes, including a 15-minute intermission.

**IMPORTANT NOTE: Patrons must show proof of COVID-19 vaccination upon entry and wear masks while attending performances at our theatre, with limited exceptions. Click here for full details.**

Round House will offer socially distanced seating on both levels of the theatre for all Wednesday evening and Thursday performances of Quixote Nuevo, with at least two open seats between parties. Socially distanced seating will also be available in the balcony of the theatre for all performances during the run.
