    Don Quixote de La Redo

    Don Quixote de La Redo is set in an imagined future near the border between Texas and México, in a place that used to be called “Laredo.” A pair of drifters encounter the lost stories of Don Quixote and strive to “re-do” them with regrettable and hilarious consequences. This production spotlights the hallmarks of Glass Half Full Theatre’s award-winning approach to performance: wry humor and inventive use of puppeteer as character, with Beckett-esque use of physical language and stunning visuals featuring puppets and human actors.  The performers use a combination of Spanish, English, and Spanglish in the show, which is easily understood by both Spanish and English speakers.

    February 9th – 25th

     

    “Glass Half Full Theater has netted  . . . considerable critical acclaim for its inventive blend of puppetry and physical storytelling.” -Austin-American Statesman

    The puppeteers who spin the evening's tale, Caroline Reck and Gricelda Silva, are engaging, precise, and humorous.” –Austin Chronicle

    The company provides full value, playing with (not against) the audience, and reveals its innovative spirit and high creativity as it does so. This is a company to follow. “ -CTX, Austin.
