Taproot Theatre’s current production of “Man of La Mancha” has been such a success that the run is being extended by two weeks, through Aug. 21. Performances are Wednesday through Saturday evenings (no Saturday matinees during the extension).
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. Taproot Theatre’s production—directed by producing artistic director Scott Nolte with musical direction by Edd Key—features fresh, acoustic arrangements and an intimate setting that transports the audience to the Spanish dungeon where Cervantes’ story unfolds. Man of La Mancha was written by Dale Wasserman with music by Mitch Leigh and lyrics by Joe Darion. The original production was staged by Albert Marre, and it was originally produced by Albert W. Selden and Hal James.
