HCTO to Present MAN OF LA MANCHA, 6/26-8/9
Thrown into prison to answer to the Spanish Inquisition on trumped-up charges, Miguel Cervantes finds himself surrounded by criminals and outcasts. To plead his innocence, he enlists his cellmates to help him reenact the legend of Don Quixote, the greatest knight of all. This powerful parable has inspired generations to find the nobility in every soul and "To Dream the Impossible Dream".
