BWW Reviews: MAN OF LA MANCHA at Austin Playhouse Is Eye-Catching But Slightly Lacking
by Jeff Davis - Sep 10, 2013

Despite all the evidence to the contrary, chivalry isn't dead, but it certainly has to fight to survive. As long as chivalry, kindness, and optimism are challenged, the story of Don Quixote will continue to be told. Perhaps that's one of the reasons behind Austin Playhouse's decision to open their 2013-2014 season with Man of La Mancha. Whatever the reason, the production is highly entertaining and a stunning feast for the eyes, though a couple performances could be tighter and more effective. (more...)
