We are thrilled that the critics have been lavishing praise on our production of Man of La Mancha. Those of you with the foresight to buy your tickets are in for a treat!

Here’s what the critics are saying –

“… this perennial favorite fully lived up to the high standards we have come to expect from the Princeton Festival.” –Toby Grace, Out in Jersey, 6/12/17

“Great songs, voices, message … a summer gem. Better than more elaborate renditions, [this production] gets to the tragic, comic heart of it all.” –John Timpane, philly.com, 6/13/17″

“Jesse Malgieri [as Cervantes/Don Quixote] has a wonderful baritone voice … and a great presence on stage.” “Sandra Marante [as Aldonza/Dulcinea] will captivate you.” “Jordan Bunshaft [as Sancho Panza] is sheer perfection.” “It’s enchanting and refreshing!” –Robin Berkel, princetonfound.com, 6/14/17

“… an expressive, engaging show … a universal cast of glorious singers beautifully perform [this] potential trap of a score.” “Marie Miller’s costumes are loaded with [wit].” –Neal Zoren, U.S.1/princetoninfo.com, 6/14/17

“There is nothing quixotic about this beautiful production, which makes effective use of the intimate space.” “Malgieri, Marante, and Bunshaft have an entertaining chemistry between then.” “[Marie} Miller’s [costume] work is particularly effective in a scene where Quixote is forced to confront another knight; and a torn but armored costume for Aldonza.” –Donald H. Sanborn III, Town Topics, 6/14/17

“I can’t imagine having many opportunities to see performers so good in such an intimate setting.” –Anthony Stoeckert, The Princeton Packet/centraljersey.com, 6/16/17
