Taproot Theatre presents ‘Man of La Mancha’

July 5th, 2010 · No Comments

Taproot Theatre presents its newest production, “Man of La Mancha,” from July 7 through Aug. 7.

Featuring the story and songs of an immortal classic, this Tony Award‐winning musical comes to the Taproot stage with fresh, acoustic arrangements. Don Quixote is mad… mad enough to dream an impossible dream while tilting after windmills with his trusty sidekick, Sancho Panza. Quixote’s romantic quest is as crazy as he is. But is his impossible dream madness or vision? The trial is about to begin. Man of La Mancha provides a glimpse into the Spanish literature that inspired Picasso, before Picasso: Masterpieces from the Musée National Picasso, Paris opens at the Seattle Art Museum (SAM) in October. Inspired by Spanish writers including Cervantes, Picasso wove characters such as Don Quixote—a revolutionary like himself—into some of his art.

Ticket prices are $20‐$35, or $10 for ages 25 and under. Students and seniors receive $3 off regular price (excludes previews). There’s a pay‐what‐you-can performance on Wed., July 14. Shows are at 7:30 p.m. on Wednesday and Thursday, 8 p.m. Friday, and 2 p.m. and 8 p.m. on Saturday. Taproot Theatre is at 204 N. 85th St.
