Randy Weeks, who books shows at the Denver Center for the Performing Arts, said he announced the show based on the best information he had — and on the hope that Brian Stokes Mitchell might play the title role, as he did on Broadway in 2002-03. But Weeks was told after he went to press with brochures that details were not completely together for a tour of the musical version of the Cervantes classic, "Don Quixote." Dates announced are Sept. 21-Oct. 3. Weeks remains hopeful La Mancha will gallop across North America and into Colorado in 2004. The 2004 musical subscription series will include visits by Hairspray (March 24-April 11 at the Buell), Movin' Out (May 25-June 6 at the Buell), Say Goodnight, Gracie (at the intimate Stage Theatre, a space usually used by Denver Center Theatre Company, in June), Starlight Express (Aug. 10-22 at the Buell), Radio City Christmas Spectacular (Nov. 26, 2004 -Jan. 2, 2005) and an unusual new Chinese martial-arts theatrical musical experience called Terracotta Warriors (July 6-18 at the Buell, following engagements in Canada). One additional show will also be announced.
