Tilting at Windmills

“ You might do a double-take as you walk into Orlando Shakes Margeson Theater, and not only because a reconfiguration means audience seating is ”in the round” – on every side of the stage. Chains dangle from the ceiling, alongside a sinister rope noose. Against a backdrop of prison bars, lanterns flicker in aqua and green.

For Orlando Shakespeare Theater's production of the musical ”Man of La Mancha,” set designer Jim Hunter made sure the Margeson has never looked better.”

“Shakes' magical dungeon propels 'Man of La Mancha'”

I Am Don Quixote

“This beautifully mounted production.....“

Knight of the Mirrors

“This is a show that puts all the Margeson Theater's tricks into play. There's a rotating stage, a center stage hydraulic riser, weird sound effects, and a moody set that looks like it was lifted from Piranesi's Prison etchings. “

–Carl F Gauze –Archikulture Digest – September 14, 2017
