Queensbury Theatre presents Man of La Mancha


Queensbury Theatre will open its inaugural 2015-2016 season curtains to the tune of Man of La Mancha. The classic tale of a man on the ultimate quest for adventure will be the theatre’s first show in the new state-of-the-art 250 seat proscenium theatre.

A play-within-a-play, this award-winning musical sets its sights on reaching the impossible with just the right amount of imagination. Inspired by the story of Don Quixote, the play opens with 17th century author-turned-tax-collector, Cervantes, who is thrown in prison by the Spanish Inquisition. To avoid having his belongings stolen from his fellow inmates, he creates a play, acting in a mock-trial with the prisoners. The verdict will decide the fate of his possessions. Cervantes transforms into Alonso Quijana, an elderly man who believes himself to be Don Quixote: a chivalrous, if not confused knight, whose mission it is to right the world’s wrongs and battle badly behaving windmills.
