Timber Lake Playhouse presents MAN OF LAMANCHA staring Broadway and Concert Star, William Michals
Man of LaMancha, the classic TONY award-winning musical is coming to Timber Lake Playhouse as the 5th show of the 2019 Season!
While awaiting a hearing with the Inquisition, Cervantes presents a play as his defense in a mock trial for the prisoners. In it, he plays Alhonso Quiana, a man who has set his own reality aside and become Don Quixote De La Mancha. Assisted by his "squire" Sancho Panza, Quixote attempts to avoid his mortal enemy, the Enchanter, and woo the serving wench and prostitute, Aldonza, who he takes to be the lady Dulcinea.
Man of LaMancha is directed by New York director, Dan Barron with Musical Director Michael McBride. “I am very excited and grateful for my first season with Timber Lake Playhouse,” states Barron. “Man of La Mancha is a special show that teaches us what the world can be and to follow your ‘impossible dream’.”
Man of LaMancha stars Broadway veteran, William Michals as Don Quixote (South Pacific, Beauty and the Beast), Christina Pecce as Aldonza (Lyric Opera of Chicago, Fort Worth Opera), Chicago actor, Aaron Choi as Sancho (Marriot Theater) and the TLP Resident Acting Company.
