Synopsis

“Quixotic” is a word that the dictionary defines as “extravagantly chivalrous or romantic; visionary…” and that is a fitting definition, indeed, for this charming retelling of Don Quixote, the 17th century Spanish classic by Miguel de Cervantes, now updated for the modern reader. The gallant and fragile Quixote will touch listeners, as will his faithful squire Sancho Panza and the tragically beautiful heroine of the gentle Don’s chivalries, the fair Dulcinea. Don Quixote is rightfully noted to “…move to pity rather than ridicule, and to tears as well as laughter. And herein lies its chief claim to greatness, that it seems to have been written not for one country nor for one age alone, but to give delight to all humankind.”

Remember -- the primary criterion is how well it helps me stay awake on my commute. This doesn't. It's not poorly-written. It's just old. Remember, this is arguably the original Western novel. Back in the day, it was a sign of literary prowess to digress all over the landscape, include a plethora of topical in-jokes, and generally try to dazzle your audience with rococo writin' skilz. It doesn't work for 21st century Americans.
