Summary:
Winner of five Tony Awards, Man of La Mancha is a tale of hope and inspiration. When Miguel Cervantes is imprisoned during the Spanish Inquisition, he is able to keep only one possession: a manuscript of a play he has written. As Cervantes sets the stage with his words in a bleak prison cell, he transports the inmates to another world — the world of Don Quixote. The inmates become characters in his story as he sings about “The Impossible Dream” in this moving demonstration of the power of imagination.
