Cervantes; The Man

There are two things you must know to enjoy the current show, "Cervantes The Last Quixote" at GALA Theatre thru October 2nd. First you must be a student and admirer of the great Miguel de Cervantes, author of Don Quixote, and second you must be an avid, sophisticated theatre aficionado who enjoys the nuances and subtlety of fine theatrical entertainment. The first is because at the very center of this exquisite tour de force is the figure and presence of the grand master himself, performed with inimitable and prodigious grace and refinement by Oscar de la Fuente. The character of Cervantes is at the very heart and soul of this 'oeuvre'. The work was commissioned by GALA and produced with Accion Sur, an ensemble based in Madrid, Spain.

CERVANTES: THE LAST QUIXOTE

Washington, DC GALA Hispanic Theatre presents everyone’s all time favorite play in the world premiere of Cervantes: The Last Quixote by Jordi Casanovas, which was commissioned by GALA. Directed by 2016 Helen Hayes Award winner José Luis Arellano from Spain. Gala is celebrating its fifth decade of bringing memorable plays to the Nation’s Capital.

Patrick Murphy's well orchestrated campaign for the Senate

When you watch Patrick Murphy live you're immediately struck by how cool, how young, how self assured he is, the classic Irish 'pol' with an aura of self confidence and grace; the polished nature of his appearances, the well orchestrated operation as if he'd been born to the political life. Indeed, he has already been compared to a Kennedy by none other than Bill Clinton who predicted he would one day become President. 

The Alchemy of 'Chronicle...'

Whereas "Chronicle of a Death Foretold" is an interesting novella and a noteworthy experiment in the works of Garcia Marquez it is not, to my mind, of the caliber of his finest achievements. It is an exercise in storytelling around the parable of a woman's shame and the frenzied violence that the account of her deflowerment whips up in a small, rural town long ago someplace to the south.
