Everybody’s looking for love, but how do we determine who is Mr./Ms. “Right?” The characters in Thornton Wilder’s The Matchmaker experience both frustration and hilarity, but they do come to a better understanding of what makes the “perfect mate.” Come to this well-loved play, and see if you agree with their choices!

Jailed during the Spanish Inquisition for offending the church, author Miguel de Cervantes is forced to act out one of his manuscripts for the entertainment of fellow inmates. Cervantes delivers a rapturous performance as the legendary Don Quixote, the chivalrous knight whose choice to see life as it should be, not as it is, takes him into battles with an imaginary foe and into romance with the beautiful Dulcinea.
