Brent Spiner (Data in Star Trek: The Next Generation and original Broadway company of Sunday in the Park With George) stars as novelist-playwright Miguel Cervantes and his immortal knight errant Don Quixote in the mesmerizing Man of La Mancha_, one of the most romantic, enduring and inspiring musicals of all time.
