Do not miss the Man of la Mancha production at Cuesta College this weekend, reviewed by Ryah Cooley on Oct. 26 ("On the inside"). I went on Oct. 26, and it was phenomenal.
It's creative theater at its best; for only $15 you can treat yourself to an amazing live theater experience. This production is as creative and beautiful as most of what bree valle and the Cuesta theater group have ever presented.
Set in a prison, the amazing steel-structured set design has actors climbing and acting 15 feet above your head. The set design transformations, costumes, and shape-shifting from a prison to a revival of Don Quijote's mission are incredible. The music (live), the singing, dance pieces, and the acting are mesmerizing. I laughed and cried real tears.
Don't miss this production. Friday, Saturday, and Sunday at 7:30 p.m., plus 1:30 p.m. matinees on the weekend. The theater seats 100, so maybe buy tickets ahead (try Google).
