The multiple award-winning musical will run in the Rinker Playhouse at the Kravis Center from September 13th through September 29th 

Boca Raton, FL – Man of La Mancha was inspired by Miguel de Cervantes’ 17th-century novel “Don Quixote”, and adapted by Dan Wasserman and features the music of Mitch Leigh and lyrics by Joe Darion. Their powerful score includes “The Impossible Dream,” “I, Don Quixote,” and “Little Bird, Little Bird” among others.
 

The story: Miguel de Cervantes, aging and an utter failure in his varied careers as playwright, poet, and tax collector, sits in a Seville dungeon with his manservant, awaiting trial by the Spanish Inquisition for an offense against the Church. The other prisoners set up a mock trial: if Cervantes is found guilty, he will hand over all his possessions. Cervantes agrees to do so and offers his defense in the form of a play. Producing a makeup kit, he transforms himself into an old man who calls himself Don Quixote de La Mancha and with his ‘squire’ Sancho Panza, sets out to find adventure to restore the age of chivalry, to battle evil, and to right all wrongs.
