SYNOPSIS: During the days of the Spanish Inquisition, failed writer and actor Miguel de Cervantes and his manservant survive as tax collectors but are soon imprisoned after being accused of crimes against the church. Facing the wrath of their fellow inmates, Cervantes must persuade the mob not to burn his prized manuscript by performing it for them…the tale of Don Quixote and Sancho Panza.

TO DREAM THE IMPOSSIBLE DREAM. Inspired by Miguel de Cervantes’ seventeenth-century masterpiece Don Quixote, Man of La Mancha is one of the world’s most successful musicals. Winner of five Tony Awards and full of laughter, love and unruly windmills, Man of La Mancha will leave you breathless with a score that includes the touching ode to romance, “Dulcinea”…the heroic “I, Don Quixote”…and the unforgettable “The Impossible Dream.”

The original 1965 Broadway production ran for 2,328 performances and won five Tony Awards including Best Musical. The musical has been revived four times on Broadway, becoming one of the most enduring works of musical theater.

Man of La Mancha is a triumph of creative imagination and stagecraft.

–New York Daily News

Man of La Mancha has a heart that sings and a spirit that soars.
