Man of La Mancha at Musical Theatre West

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
