Submitted by The Actors Gymnasium
The Actors Gymnasium is proud to announce Circus Quixotic, an original circus theatre production adapted and directed by David and Kerry Catlin, with circus choreography by Artistic Director Sylvia Hernandez-DiStasi. The show features Michel Rodriguez Cintra, Amanda Raquel Martinez, Danielle Gennaoui, Ryan Huemmer, Julian Hester, as well as members of the Gym’s Teen Ensemble.
Circus Quixotic is part of Actors Gym’s annual Winter Circus tradition, which is one of Chicago’s most popular circus shows.
Adapted from Miguel de Cervantes’s Don Quixote, Circus Quixotic is an idealistic, unrealistic and impractical journey into the mad and noble imagination of an unlikely knight and his dim yet steadfast squire. Dare to dream of defeating diresome dragons, overcoming evil enchanters, toppling giants disguised as windmills, and bashing the book burners on this hilarious attempt to bring chivalry back into the world!
