Man of La Mancha

Man of La Mancha - SOLD OUT

Music by Mitch Leigh
Lyrics by Joe Darion
Book by Dale Wasserman

Winner of 5 Tony Awards including Best Musical Score and Best Musical Man of La Mancha at Arvada Center

One of the most beloved musicals of all time tells the story of author, actor, tax collector Miguel de Cervantes, imprisoned by the Spanish Inquisition and awaiting a mock trial by a jury of his fellow prisoners. To save his life’s work from seizure and sure destruction, Cervantes’ defense will be to act out a play with his fellow prisoners. The play - his creation -  Don Quixote de la Mancha recounts the tale of the mad knight who believes the wrongs of the world can be corrected as he jousts at windmills with his trusty sidekick, Sancho Panza and his beloved Dulcinea in the quest for “The Impossible Dream.”
