Man of La Mancha is one of the world’s most popular musicals. Inspired by Miguel de Cervantes’s seventeenth-century masterwork Don Quixote and set during the Spanish Inquisition, the original 1965 production won five Tony Awards including Best Musical. Cervantes is in prison awaiting trial during the Spanish Inquisition. He and his fellow prisoners perform a play-within-a-play, telling the story of the elderly Alonso Quijana, who renames himself "Don Quixote" and goes on a quest to right all wrongs in the world along with his trusty companions: the loyal Sancho and the beautiful but troubled Aldonza. The rousing, Spanish-inflected score includes the classic numbers I, Don Quixote, Dulcinea, I Really Like Him, and the inspiring The Impossible Dream.
