Man of La Mancha

by Dale Wasserman, Mitch Leigh, and Joe Darion

The 2014 Commencement Musical

A prison cell. A beleaguered poet. An epic, unforgettable tale.

This is Miguel de Cervantes’ story of love, valor, madness, misadventure, and the triumph of the human imagination. Don Quixote comes to life in a sweeping and sultry musical adaption. Our knight errant vanquishes windmills and hopelessness, carries dishcloths with dignity, and pursues a shaving basin in the name of eternal glory.

On Commencement weekend, dare to dream THE IMPOSSIBLE DREAM.
