Musical Theatre West presented Davis Gaines as Cervantes/Don Quixote at the Carpenter Center for the Performing Arts in Long Beach, CA. Directed by Nick DeGruccio, this new rendition of the seminal classic thrilled audiences and critics alike. Scenic Design by Kevin Clowes. Lighting Design by Steven Young.
“Steven Young’s terrific lighting and Catheen Edwards’ costumes support the story’s instantaneous shifts between the foreboding prison and Cervantes’ flights of fancy.” – Les Spindle, Backstage
“… the net effect, aided by Steven Young’s invaluable lighting and Cathleen Edwards’ Goya-esque costumes, coordinated by Todd Proto, is gripping.” – David C. Nichols
