Why See Man Of La Mancha?
Returning to Los Angeles in 2017!
A celebrated Broadway hit and winner of five Tony Awards, Man of La Mancha returns to Los Angeles for the first time since 2014. Having left thousands breathless with a score including the touching ode to romance, "Dulcinea," the heroic "I, Don Quixote" and the immortal ballad "The Impossible Dream.", this phenomenal production fleshes out the other characters of this classic story who are larger than life, and well-loved by millions of people around the world.
An opera within a musical!
Inspired by one of the greatest novels of all time, Man of La Mancha channels the power of storytelling in a meta-musical format to recount the legend of would-be knight Don Quixote and his trusty sidekick Sancho as they embark on a journey full of laughter, love and unruly windmills.
Miguel de Cervantes and his faithful servant are thrown into jail by the brutal Inquisition for foreclosing on a monastery that failed to pay their taxes. Having managed to bring all their belongings with them into gaol, the other prisoners give them a deal - there will be a "trial" of sorts, and if they lose, they must hand over their worldly possessions. De Cervantes dons the costume of an elderly gentlemen, who then goes on to regale his unruly audience with The Legend of Don Quixote's exploits, as he embarks on a quest to lay siege on the windmills and to win the heart of his beautiful muse, Aldonza.
