With an intrepid ensemble of four professional actors and 30 non-professional community members spanning the broad cross section typical of Broad Street Ministry  (professionals, people suffering from homelessness, activists), director Lear deBessonet creates a compelling reinterpretation of Cervantes’ Don Quixote.  Set in a richly imagined anachronistic world where 16th Century Spain meets center city Philadelphia, featuring puppets by Emily Decola and original music by gypsy-punk band The Psalters, Quixote asks the question, is it insane to believe in a more just world?
Part muse, part fantastical setting, and part laboratory–the Broad Street Ministry community provides Quixote a community context.  And not just any context–a place where social justice is practiced rather than given lip-service and the power structures of society hold little sway.  Quixote is saturated with the community’s motivations–it lives inside Broad Street Ministry’s commitments to transform their corner of the city–it is made special by the peculiar genius/madness of its communal character.
WE REALLY HOPE YOU WILL COME FOR THIS-OUR FIRST FORAY INTO the THEA-TAAHH!!
