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.

"Gaines was born to play this role. Crawford has unbelievable strength and makes Aldonza her very own creation. Top of the line production for director Casale and La Mirada Theatre for the Performing Arts."

"As mentioned in the Artistic Director's Note, Man of La Mancha is not intended to be a faithful rendition of Cervantes' life or of Don Quixote. Cervantes wrote Don Quixote as a farce, and the audience is meant to see Quixote as a fool. Despite that many people still believe in the nobility of Quixote's actions, which Man of La Mancha capitalizes on. The result is an uplifting, touching show with a lot of humor and great songs."

"Director Casale has astutely packed his cast with some genuinely astonishing talents—vocally and dramatically. In addition, his direction bestows on us a more earthy and realistic production than has been seen recently, while making terrific use of humor to create greater relatability between his characters and the audience."
