Chicago Theater: Building Stage Closes With Final Production Of Dawn, Quixote

on March 25, 2013

Dawn Quixote

After eight years of presenting original, ensemble-created works, The Building Stage in Chicago will close for good at the end of next month.

The Building Stage (412 N. Carpenter St., Chicago IL) opened its doors with its interpretation of Hamlet in 2005. Specializing in bare-bones productions, The Building Stage became synonymous with unique interpretations of classic works.

For its final show, the company will puts its spin on one of Miguel de Cervantes’ most famous masterpieces.

Dawn, Quixote, follows the misadventures of Don Quixote and his squire Sancho. In this version, the self-proclaimed knight returns after years of struggle to face the dawn of his final day. The Building Stage’s version is a comedic adaptation of the Quixote myth for six actors with fake bears, imaginary horses and ukuleles.

The show runs until April 27 and it’s imperative to see this Chicago institution before it shuts its doors down for good. For ticket information, visit
