Even though he’s delusional, Don Quixote’s madness in Man of La Mancha is depicted as a freedom from the prison of reality. This new production from Theater Latté Da plans to amplify this inspiring theme by placing the tale in a contemporary context (while retaining the core book and music). The musical take on Cervantes tells the tale of a middle-aged gentleman who becomes convinced of his true identity as a medieval knight. After cobbling together some armor, saddling up his weary horse as a noble steed, and enlisting a farmer, Sancho Panza, as his loyal squire, Don Quixote sets out in search of chivalrous acts such as defeating roving giants (which are, in fact, windmills) and preserving the honor of his flawless beloved Dulcinea (who is actually far from innocent). Directed by Peter Rothstein, the production stars Broadway vet Martín Solá alongside local standouts Meghan Kreidler as Dulcinea and Zachary Garcia as Sancho Panza.
