Man of La Mancha

book by Dale Wasserman, lyrics by Joe Darion, music by Mitch Leigh

directed by Francis A Daley, musical director Morgan Kelsey

December 7,8,13,14,15,21,22,23,28,29,30, January 3,4,5, 2019

We encounter historical author Miguel de Cervantes in prison, awaiting trial by the Inquisition. When his fellow prisoners try to take Cervantes' belongings from him, including his manuscript, Cervantes proposes a trial in which he proves the merit of the manuscript through a reenactment, enlisting his fellow prisoners as characters in his play. Together, they tell the story of the aged Alonso Quijana who believes himself to be a knight errant, names himself Don Quixote, and pursues an obsessive quest to attain an impossible dream.
