Man of La Mancha

Written by Dale Wasserman • Music by Mitch Leigh • Lyrics by Joe Darion

Directed by Julia Rodriguez-Elliott

Set in a prison, the story-within-a-story of Don Quixote’s musical misadventures – rife with love, chivalry, and of course, four-armed giants – unfurls into something more transcendent: a beacon of hope in a dire world. Dream the impossible dream with the wandering hidalgo in this quintessential tale about the resilience of the human spirit, and the power of storytelling when faced with insurmountable odds.

Original Production Staged by Albert Marre • Originally Produced by Albert W. Selden and Hal James • Original Orchestrations by Carlyle W. Hall, Sr.
"Too much sanity may be madness — and maddest of all: to see life as it is, and not as it should be!" — Man of La Mancha
