26 Apr - 08 Jun 2019

The producers who brought you the smash hit productions of Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street, Sunset Boulevard, Carousel and Chess present the Tony Award-winning musical Man of La Mancha.

Featuring the legendary song, The Impossible Dream (The Quest), Man of La Mancha is inspired by Miguel de Cervantes’s masterpiece novel Don Quixote. This uplifting, timeless tale stars Kelsey Grammer, Danielle de Niese, Nicholas Lyndhurst, Cassidy Janson and Peter Polycarpou from 26 April for a limited six week season.

Described by esteemed American critic Edward P. Morgan as ‘one of the most magnificently moving pieces I have ever seen on any stage’, and celebrated throughout the world, Man of La Mancha at last returns to the West End in a new production for the first time in 50 years. Performed on the magnificent stage at the London Coliseum with ENO’s 30-piece orchestra, it is set to be the theatrical event of the year.

Join Don Quixote as he chases his impossible dream, to pursue the beautiful princess Dulcinea – and a few windmills. Determined to uphold all that is good and right at a time when the odds are stacked against him, Quixote’s courage is abounding, and we are all compelled to follow his unreachable star.
