Quixote Nuevo

JANUARY 19 – FEBRUARY 11, 2024

Bagley Wright Theater

Aging Cervantes professor Jose Quijano isn’t going down without a fight. When his family tries to move him to an assisted living facility, Jose escapes on his valiant tricycle steed in search of his long-lost love. Reality and fantasy blur in the Texas desert, as Jose dubs himself Don Quixote and embarks on a fantastic, death-defying journey to discover the truth of his past. Underscored by vibrant Tejano music, Quixote Nuevo is a humorous and heartfelt quest towards becoming the hero of your own story.

Bursting with Tejano music and puppets of many sizes and styles, Quixote Nuevo deftly and efficiently leads viewers from reality to fantasy and into the murky borderlands that lie in between.

The Seattle Times

Brilliant yet accessible, visually stunning, and truly fun despite being emotionally complex.


Quixote Nuevo commands the stage, reminding audiences what it means to be epic…Go see the play for yourself!
