A story of hope and idealism rises from the darkness and despair of a prison cell in Man of La Mancha, carried aloft by some of the most familiar and moving songs of the American theatre. As Miguel de Cervantes presents his tale of knight errant Don Quixote, his journey comes alive in a play-within-the-play, featuring loyal friends, troubled maidens, giant monsters and brave knights. Don Quixote’s quest—filled with humor and poignancy in equal measure—dares everyone to dream “The Impossible Dream.”

STC Associate Artistic Director Alan Paul helms Man of La Mancha, one of the most acclaimed adaptations—musical or otherwise—of classic literature. Following Paul’s Helen Hayes Award-winning production of A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum, Man of La Mancha continues to pave the way for classically inspired musicals to join the Company’s repertoire.
