We did not expect to like it but we loved it. The acting was wonderful. The staging was imaginative. The costumes were great. At first we were not sure that the voice of Don Quixote was strong enough but it really fit with his age and character. Don't miss it.
Quotes & Highlights
“It’s the music that matters, and in this regard the Keegan is dead-on.” -Washington Post
“The players really shine. Jourdan, in the title role, achieves the requisite alchemy to switch back and forth between the melancholy, charismatic Cervantes and the beautifully batty Knight of the Woeful Countenance.” _-Washington City Paper_
The Keegan Theatre brings back to the stage one of its most successful productions, the musical Man of La Mancha. Based on Cervantes’ classic, Don Quixote comes to life as an old knight seeks honor in the world but instead finds true love. Since its off-Broadway beginnings in the 1960s, this show has warmed the heart and taught us all the importance of following our dreams. Man of La Mancha is one of the most enduring works of musical theatre, and one that remains in your heart and soul well after you leave the theater. Keegan’s production will once again feature the incredible talent of Helen Hayes-nominated actor and Keegan company member David Jourdan as Don Quixote.
