Don Quixote, of windmill fame, spends his time trying to right all the wrongs in the world with the help of his squire Sancho Panza. The main character, Cervantes, tells his tale to his fellow prisoners—passing the time as they anxiously await interrogation by an authoritarian regime. It is a play within a play, dealing with hope and disillusionment, accompanied by a stirring musical score. It showcases some of the greatest Broadway tunes of all time, including “I, Don Quixote” and “The Impossible Dream.”
Man of La Mancha was written by Dale Wasserman, music by Mitch Leigh and lyrics by Joe Darion. Its produced by arrangement with, and music and dialogue materials furnished by: Tams-Witmark Music Library, Inc., 560 Lexington Ave., New York, NY 10022.
