June 2 – 25, 2017 | $ 20.00 – $70.00
Winner of the Tony Awards for Best Musical and Best Score, Man of La Mancha has become one of the most enduring works of musical theatre.
Celebrating life – not as it is, but as it should be – is at the heart of this inspiring and unforgettable musical. Chivalrous knight Don Quixote embarks on an unpredictable adventure that takes him into battles with an imaginary foe and into romance with the beautiful Dulcinea. The Spanish-influenced score is a musical delight, containing the magnificent and uplifting anthem to all that is best in us: THE IMPOSSIBLE DREAM. Remember what it is to believe in all that is noble, heroic and romantic with this rousing classic.
