Review: Don Quixote

The two blazing leads are supported by a cast without a weak link, shifting smoothly from shepherds and peasants to noblemen to puppeteers.

Don Quixote review

By the end of the performance a standing ovation was given and it was easy to see that the love between David and Rufus went as deep as their characters', embracing each other as good friends.

Don Quixote review

Unfortunately, despite some excellent performances, great staging and a strong ensemble, the show never quite ignites, although the fire alarm going off may suggest otherwise! This situation was handled superbly by Hound and actually added to the humour of the evening.
