Camino Real 

Its run was shortlived, but he may have just been ahead of his time. The play is a dreamlike pastiche of more than 40 characters from Don Quixote, Casanova and Lord Byron to gritty street characters who encounter each other in random passing on a constantly reconfiguring city block. The theater company Brooklyn on Foot first staged its version as street theater, adapting it very literally to chance encounters that engaged passersby at Columbus Circle in New York City. The group also performed it on a beachside pedestrian boardwalk at the Tennessee Williams Festival in Provincetown, Mass. These performances at the Tennessee Williams/New Orleans Literary Festival are stage productions. Tickets $25. — Will Coviello

8 p.m. Fri., March 28; 2 p.m. Sat., March 29
