Loco for Love @ Mission San Luis
Sep 21 @ 6:00 pm
Loco for Love @ Mission San Luis | Tallahassee | Florida | United States

On Thursday, September 21, 2017, Mission San Luis invites the public to a free Cultural Thursdays program that will include:
6 pm – Reception with Charles Santiago playing classical Spanish guitar selections from the 1600s
6:30 pm – Surprise guest speaker to introduce the play
7:00 pm – “Loco for Love: Cervantes v. Shakespeare” play performed by Theater with a Mission

The play portrays famous authors Miguel de Cervantes and William Shakespeare competing for the title of “World Champion Storyteller” as they present scenes from the life of the character Cardenio – a man driven “loco” when his best friend steals his fiancée. (Cervantes introduced Cardenio as a sort of lunatic side character in his novel “Don Quixote” in 1605. Shakespeare re-visited this character a few years later in his own last, lost play, “The History of Cardenio.”) The audience will vote with a “viva!” or “huzzah!” to indicate their favorite playwright in each round of scenes. The script, like its title, includes both English and Spanish and is a fun, historic take on a romantic cliffhanger.
