Winner of five Tony Awards, including Best Musical, Man of La Mancha retells the timeless story of Miguel Cervantes' Don Quixote as a play-within-a-play. Cervantes re-enacts his story of the mad knight, a dying old man who lives in a world of his imagination as he awaits his hearing in the Spanish Inquisition. The show features a treasure trove of some of the greatest songs to come out of Broadway, including "Dulcinea," "I'm Only Thinking of Him," "I Really Like Him" and the beloved "The Impossible Dream." Against all odds, a man sees good and innocence in a world filled with darkness and despair. This lyrical and amusing adventure is a classic tale of the triumph of man over his own follies.

I was pleasantly surprised. A talented cast with nice, strong voices, and some clever directing. Scrooge was quite good--a bit of a ham, but fun to watch. No Tony awards in the future, but a good, solid show. Unfortunately, the musical accompaniment was pretty bad and dominated by a poor pianist playing on a poor-quality piano (hence the surprise, as the overture left me wary). Also, the behavior of several audience members was less than sterling. Doesn't anyone know basic theater etiquette anymore? A pleasant evening, nonetheless.
When Charles Dickens wrote his “ghostly little tale” in 1843, he couldn’t know that A Christmas Carol was destined to become one of the most beloved holiday traditions of all time. By telling this fable illustrating the unfairness of the Industrial Revolution and the necessity for brotherhood and unselfishness, Dickens gave the world one of its most enduring Christmas stories.
