Man of La Mancha
, the Tony-winning musical that spawned one of the most famous and often-recorded songs of the 20th century -- "The Impossible Dream" -- opens the Cygnet Theatre's 2012-2013 season. From Robert Goulet, Frank Sinatra and Liberace to Elvis, Luther Vandross and the Mormon Tabernacle Choir, Don Quixote's musical declaration of the unstoppable human spirit has inspired generations, as has the show itself. Set in the late 16th century, the author Miguel Cervantes awaits his hearing in the Spanish Inquisition and responds to a challenge from his fellow prisoners to re-enact his not-yet-famed story of the mad knight who lives in a world of his imagination and requited love. The Cygnet's own Sean Murray directs and stars as Cervantes. The show was last revived on Broadway in 2002, starring Tony nominee Brian Stokes Mitchell, and won five Tony Awards, including Best Musical, in its original run.
