Seattle Times theater critic Misha Berson writes:
Don Quixote is popping up all over Seattle these days. In addition to current productions of “Man of La Mancha” at Seattle Musical Theatre, and “Don Quixote and Sancho Panza: Homeless in Seattle” at ACT Theatre (reviews to come this Friday), soon we’ll have a dinner-theater adaptation of the classic Cervantes novel about his travels.
That will be Café Nordo’s “Don Nordo del Midwest,” the imaginative origin-story of Chef Nordo as inspired by Cervantes’ fable of a poor and whimsical wanderer who believes he is a gallant knight. The show (which will likely include a creative spin on Spanish cuisine) will inaugurate the company’s much anticipated new venue, located in a portion of the Elliott Bay Book Company’s former digs in Pioneer Square. “Don Nordo” will open Nov. 13 (previews beginning Nov. 6). Tickets go on sale to the general public on Oct. 15. More on Café Nordo: www.cafenordo.com
