5th Avenue Theatre Dreams the Impossible Dream With Man of La Mancha
Rufus Bonds Jr. stars as Don Quixote.
Inspired by Cervantes' novel Don Quixote, Man of La Mancha enters the mind and world of the mad knight Don Quixote as he pursues his quest for the impossible dream. In a tale told by Cervantes himself in defense of his life's work, Quixote is, against all odds, a man who sees good and innocence in a world filled with darkness and despair.
Dale Wasserman wrote the book for Man of La Mancha with music by Mitch Leigh and lyrics by Joe Darion. Allison Narver directs.
