A rare gem of a romantic comedy about Don Quixote!
Bernadette, who is running for her life falls under the protection of Roger who is obsessed with Don Quixote who is, in turn, guided by Sancho Panza who appears through a time warp (closet), who falls in love with Roger's mother, who is trying to cast 'Man of La Mancha' for her local theater. A wildly romantic comedy about truth, love and the magic of the foolish moon. And you get to use a fog machine for the time warp!
"An evening of good fun,...big laughs." - The Princeton Packet, New Jersey
"By fusing sophisticated comedy and farce, it is guaranteed to gain many fans... Plentiful laughs in a highly gyrating plot!... A contemporary retelling of Don Quixote set in the living room of a beach house. Brilliant!... More directly comic, are marvelously eccentric characters who are given terrific quips and shtick by Jannuzzi." - The Kalamazoo Gazette
"Highly imaginative... Inspired... This Moon really shines." - Home News Tribune, New Jersey
Night of the Foolish Moon was first presented by the Villager's Theatre in Somerset, New Jersey, on May 29, 1998. It was directed by Robert Hickson.
