Winner of five Tony Awards, including Best Musical, Man of La Mancha retells the timeless tale 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 anthemic "The Impossible Dream."

Reviews & Ratings
Whether contemplating the contents of gilded chests or the darkest corners of human nature, The Merchant of Venice challenges audiences to look beyond misleading appearances to find the true measure of things. An intriguing story of power and revenge, justice and mercy, true love and duplicity, features some of Shakespeare’s most complex and memorable characters.
Staged at STC for the first time in over a decade, The Merchant of Venice is directed by Ethan McSweeny, whose “posh production” of Major Barbara was hailed by The Washington Post as “dandy…light itself.”
