The Long Center of Performing Arts invites broadway-goers to their newly added broadway show, Man of La Mancha. The broadway musical is only performing two shows this week on Jan. 14 and ending Jan. 15.
Circa 1965, Man of La Mancha was born and won five Tony Awards, including Best Musical. The most notable song, The Impossible Dream, became a true gem in the show. Man of La Mancha was an adaptation from Dale Wasserman’s non-musical teleplay, I, Don Quixote, which was inspired Miguel de Cervantes’ Don Quixote. It tells the story of Don, a “mad” knight, as a play within a play performed by Cervantes and his fellow prisoners as he awaits a hearing with the Spanish Inquisition.
The Long Center is located at 701 W. Riverside Dr. The show begins at 7:30 on both performing days, Jan. 14-15. Tickets begin at $39 for basic seating, but for selective seating, prices vary. Groups of 10 or more persons are eligible for discounts. Tickets can be purchased online or via telephone at 512-474-5664. For more information on the event visit the Long Center’s website.
