MAN OF LA MANCHA
September 27, 2021 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm$20 – $22
This is a co-production between Theatre Street Productions and the Endicott Performing Arts Center and will commemorate the 55th anniversary of the musical’s 5 Tony Awards. Man of La Mancha is one of the world’s most popular musicals. Inspired by Miguel de Cervantes’ seventeenth-century masterwork Don Quixote and set during the Spanish Inquisition, the original 1965 production won five Tony Awards, including Best Musical. Cervantes is in prison awaiting trial during the Spanish Inquisition. He and his fellow prisoners perform a play-within-a-play, telling the story of the elderly Alonso Quijana, who renames himself “Don Quixote” and goes on a quest to right all wrongs in the world. The rousing, Spanish-inflected score includes the classic numbers “The Impossible Dream,” “I, Don Quixote,” “Dulcinea,” “I Really Like Him” and “Little Bird.” This production is directed by Patrick Foti, with musical direction by Paula Bacorn, and choreography by Andy Shaul.
