The Newcomb Department of Music Musical Theatre Workshop presents Man of La Mancha, directed by B. Michael Howard. Miguel de Cervantes, aging and an utter failure in his varied careers as playwright, poet and tax collector for the government, has been thrown into a dungeon in Seville to await trial by the Inquisition for an offense against the Church. Thus begins the journey that is Man of La Mancha – a remarkable show and one of the great theatre successes of our time having been revived four times on Broadway. This multi Tony award-winning musical is a play-within-a-play, based on Cervantes' Don Quixote. We have a poignant story of a dying old man whose impossible dream takes over his mind. His dream is Everyman's dream. His tilting at windmills is Everyman's great adventure. Somehow, the footlights disappear, time is telescoped and the Man of La Mancha speaks for humankind. “It's All the Same,” “Dulcinea,” “I'm Only Thinking of Him,” “I Really Like Him,” “Little Bird,” and “The Impossible Dream” remain in your thoughts and in your soul well after you experience the performance.
