Man of La Mancha - San Jose Playhouse

TO DREAM THE IMPOSSIBLE DREAM. Inspired by Miguel de Cervantes’ seventeenth-century masterpiece Don Quixote, Man of La Mancha is one of the world’s most successful musicals. Winner of five Tony Awards and full of laughter, love and unruly windmills, MAN OF LA MANCHA will leave you breathless with a score that includes the touching ode to romance, “Dulcinea”...the heroic “I, Don Quixote”...and the unforgettable “The Impossible Dream.” MAN OF LA MANCHA features Cervantes and his faithful servant, who channel the power of storytelling to recount the legend of wannabe knight Don Quixote and his trusty sidekick Sancho Panza embarking on a journey to restore chivalry to the world, claim his lady love, and dare to dream “The Impossible Dream.” Powerful, brutal, hilarious, and heartbreaking, MAN OF LA MANCHA celebrates the perseverance of someone who refuses to relinquish his ideals or his passion.
