MAN OF LA MANCHA Comes to Fulton Theatre Beginning Tonight

Fulton Theatre's 6th show of the 21/22 Marquee Season is the dynamic, exhilarating Man of La Mancha. This epic musical is based on Miguel de Cervantes' seventeenth century novel, Don Quixote, arguably the first true novel of the modern era. As the play begins, we see Cervantes and his manservant thrown into a dungeon where they are to be held as they await trial before the Spanish Inquisition. They are attacked by their fellow prisoners, hoping to rob these newcomers of their belongings, including a large trunk. Cervantes holds them off and proceeds to take out a makeup kit and costume pieces from his trunk, and transforms into Alonso Quijano, an older gentleman who has lost his mind and who sets out as a knight (Don Quixote). Thus begins our play within a play, creating a world of courageous knights who battle monsters, prove chivalry is not dead, and remind us all that when we believe in a higher calling and lead our lives with hope and courage, all is never lost.

Man of La Mancha was written by Dale Wasserman, with music by Mitch Leigh, and lyrics by Joe Darion. The musical premiered on Broadway in 1965 and won five Tony awards, including Best Musical. It has been revived four times and is considered a mainstay in the Broadway pantheon. Favorite songs include I, Don Quixote, Dulcinea, I Really Like Him, and The Impossible Dream.
