What a production! The cast - especially the divine Sean Murray - is outstanding. (Although I thought Erika Phillips voice not appropriate for the role.) The sets, costumes, staging, is excellent. What this company is able to do on a tiny stage...continued

Staging was good. Acting was good. Don Quixote was excellent. Aldonza had the wrong voice (wobbly soprano) for the part.

It never ceases to amaze me how this local theater company can be so good. I was born in Manhattan and have attended a number of Broadway and off Broadway plays and can attest that Cignet very often can hold its own with the best of them. Loved...continued

To put it into perspective, we had attended "Wicked" the week prior, we enjoyed " Man of La Mancha" so much more. This theater and the performances they put on are the best kept secret in S.D. I payed less for three tickets to this show than for...continued

Loved the show, music, sets, actors, just not Dulcinea, too operatic for my taste. But was a very good experience

Wonderful performance, we very, very, very much enjoyed it. I was concerned that I may not be able to sit for 2.5 hours but time went so fast, i did not even feel it! Old Town Theater is great too, every seat is a great seat.

Though the voices are not stellar, the cast did a really good job and the staging was very clever. Worth seeing.

We loved going to a small venue and live theater is always a pleasure.
Parking was tough so we got seated late. Go early because Old Town is crowded in the Summer.
The performance was wonderful. Standing ovation.

The seats were front row!
The actor that plays Cervantes is excellent. I also enjoyed the costumes and scenery. Although the padre's voice is beautiful, some of the singing seemed to be a bit off, but it was preview. One part was pretty...continued

We had the "worst" seats in the house, two of the last three remaining available when I purchased and they were great seats! It did not matter that they were way on the end and the first row. We have seen a great deal of theatre in our long...continued
