WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
Miguel de Cervantes and his faithful servant are thrown into jail by the brutal Spanish Inquisition for foreclosing on a monastery that failed to pay their taxes. Having managed to bring all their belongings with them into gaol, the other prisoners give them a deal - there will be a "trial" of sorts, and if they lose, they must hand over their worldly possessions.
De Cervantes, with the help of his servant then dons the costume of an elderly gentlemen, who then goes on to regale his unruly audience with The legend of Don Quixote's exploits, as he embarks on a quest to lay siege on the windmills and to win the heart of his beautiful muse, Aldonza.
Inspired by one of the greatest novels of all time, Man of La Mancha channels the power of storytelling in a meta-musical format to recount the legend of would-be knight Don Quixote and his trusty sidekick Sancho as they embark on a journey full of laughter, love and unruly windmills.
