Manatee Players to Bring Don Quixote Musical to Local Stage

Published Monday, March 10, 2014 12:07 am

BRADENTON – The Tony award-winning musical Man of La Mancha comes to the Manatee Performing Arts Center this month. The play is adapted from Dale Wasserman's nonmusical 1959 teleplay, I Don Quixote, which itself is based on Miguel de Cervantes's legendary 17th-century masterpiece Don Quixote, a one of a kind comedy about the adventures of an insane man who thinks he is a Knight.
