MAN OF LA MANCHA
March 3 – May 1, 2016
Book by Dale Wasserman Music by Mitch Leigh Lyrics by Joe Darion.
Man of La Mancha, set in 17th century Spain, is a powerful blend of tragedy, romance, comedy and adventure. The musical tells the story of Miguel de Cervantes’ wrongful imprisonment during the Spanish Inquisition. In his defense, Cervantes shares the elaborate tale of Don Quixote. Backed by his faithful sidekick, Sancho Panza, Don Quixote pursues his quest for the Impossible Dream. He is a man who sees good and innocence in a world filled with darkness and despair. This inspiring musical invites the audience to explore the contrast between the reality of Cervantes’ prison cell and the dream of Quixote’s quest for perfection.
The story is both very entertaining and very moving, and will warm the heart of everyone whose spirits were ever raised by the prospect of a victory by the underdog against all the odds. The score is a musical delight and contains one of the most poignant moments in musical theatre as Don Quixote relates his personal credo in “The Impossible Dream”.
