A mixture of romance, humor and tragedy, framed within a rich musical score featuring the timeless anthem “The Impossible Dream,” this epic musical was beloved on Broadway to the tune of four revivals and five Tony awards. Miguel de Cervantes, playwright, poet and tax collector, finds himself imprisoned and awaiting trial by the Inquisition. When his fellow prisoners try to confiscate the uncompleted manuscript of the novel Don Quixote, Cervantes defends his masterpiece by presenting it as a play. Transforming himself into the title character, he plays out his sweeping story of a deluded would-be-knight who becomes obsessed by his idealistic belief that the wrongs of the world can be corrected.
Parental guidelines for Man of La Mancha: Man of La Mancha is suggested for older teens or students who already have an interest in the subject matter. Parents should know that there is low-grade brutality, by prisoners, prison guards and tavern-goers throughout the play. This level of violence pales in comparison to video games and movies familiar to many teens. Rape is suggested in a scene though never said. This musical with beautiful exciting memorable songs was written in 1964, based on a novel published in 1605 which explore topics including idealism, madness, poetry and prisons.
