About Man of La Mancha

Kelsey Grammer stars in this semi-staged concert production of Man of La Mancha as the musical returns to the West End at the London Coliseum, with tickets available now. 

Inspired by the 17th century novel Don Quixote, Dale Wasserman, Joe Darion and Mitch Leigh's classic Broadway musical Man of La Mancha is known as one of the 'most enduring pieces of musical theatre' having enjoyed four revivals in New York, and contains one of theatre's most recognisable songs in "The Impossible Dream".

Framed as a play within a play, Man of La Mancha sees Spanish writer Miguel de Cervantes performing a play based on his novel Don Quixote to a group of prisoners awaiting a hearing. Its score includes the standard "The Impossible Dream", as well as "Man of La Mancha (I, Don Quixote)" and "A Little Gossip".

Man of La Mancha is at the London Coliseum until 8th June, with tickets available now.  

Kelsey Grammer will play Miguel de Cervantes and Don Quixote in the musical. Grammer is best-known for playing Dr Frasier in the hit US sitcom Cheers  and his character's subsequent spin-off. He recently appeared in the London production of the musical Big Fish at The Other Palace. 

 Danielle De Niese is an Australian opera singer who starred as Cleopatra in a production of Guilio Cesare at Glyndebourne to widespread acclaim, and she has performed in operas across the globe.

The musical premiered in Connecticut in 1965, before opening to New York Broadway that same year and opening on Broadway in 1968. It ran for 2,328 performances across its six-year run which was directed by Albert Marre. Richard Kiley won a Tony Award for his performance in the central role while the show also won awards for best musical and best original score.

Man of La Mancha went on to transfer to the West End, opening at the Piccadilly Theatre in April 1968. The production starred Keith Michell and Joan Diener, and ran for 253 performances. It has also been revived on Broadway four times since its premiere, in 1972, 1977, 1992 and 2002.

In 1972, Peter O'Toole and Sophia Loren starred in a film adaptation of the musical, which also had choreography from renowned British choreographer Gillian Lynne.

More information about Man of La Mancha

Miguel de Cervantes, failed playwright, poet and tax collector, has been thrown in jail by the Spanish Inquisition for daring to tax a monastery.

Awaiting trial Cervantes is hailed before a kangaroo court of his fellow prisoners; thieves, cutthroats and trollops who propose to confiscate his meagre possessions one of which is the uncompleted manuscript of a novel called “Don Quixote.” Cervantes, seeking to save it, proposes to offer a novel defence in the form of entertainment.

As Cervantes and his servant transform into Don Quixote & Sancho Panza, his wild imagination leads them into a campaign to restore the age of chivalry, to battle evil and right all wrongs.
