by Nicholas Pontolillo - Nov 28, 2021

Question: Why is Man of La Mancha considered one of the great works of the theater? Answer: It is one of the few plays/musicals that will always resonate with its audience.

BWW Review: MAN OF LA MANCHA at Ch√Ętelet Photo BWW Review: MAN OF LA MANCHA at Ch√Ętelet
by Patrick Honoré - Jun 12, 2021

For only four performances the past two weekends, the Ch√Ętelet in Paris was alive again with the sound of musicals we‚Äôve been missing so much here. Boasting 2300 performances, and no less than four revivals on Broadway, Man of La Mancha ranks among the most performed musicals around the world. The book is by Dale Wasserman, based on his own teleplay on the fictional life of Don Quixote and that of his creator Cervantes, a very melodic score by Mitch Leigh, his first musical effort and his only big success, and lyrics by Joe Darion, which gave us at least two standards, the title song and ‚ÄúThe Impossible Dream‚ÄĚ, the latter recorded not only by Jacques Brel but by Johnny Halliday and Julien Clerc.
