Man of La Mancha: Musical Tale of Don Quixote
Man of La Mancha -- based on Cervantes' epic 17th-century novel, Don Quixote -- is a remarkable, poignant, moving musical that was one of the first shows to set a piece of historical literature to song. Set against the backdrop of the Spanish Inquisition, Man of La Mancha is presented as a play-within-a-play. We encounter historical author Miguel de Cervantes in prison, awaiting trial. When his fellow prisoners try to take his belongings, including his manuscript, Cervantes proposes a trial in which he proves the merit of the manuscript through a reenactment, enlisting his fellow prisoners as characters in his play. Together, they tell the story of the aged Alonso Quijana who believes himself to be a knight errant, names himself Don Quixote, and pursues an obsessive quest to attain an impossible dream. Missouri Street Theatre embarks on this epic musical quest at Fairfield's Downtown Theatre.
