Don Quixote de La Redo is an original adaptation set in an imagined future near the border between Texas and México, in a place that used to be called “Laredo.” A pair of technicians assigned to assess the border wall encounter the lost stories of Don Quixote and strive to “re-do” them with regrettable and hilarious consequences.
This is NOT a children’s puppet show. Children 10 and older will enjoy the spectacle but the socio-political commentary is strictly adult. Parents be warned there is bilingual cursing (Sh*t/ cabron/ ch#ngada).
More about language: The performers use a combination of English, Spanish, and Spanglish. Easily understood by English-only speakers; extra fun for bilingual speakers.
