THE STORY

This five-time Tony Award® winning musical classic begins as Miguel de Cervantes, aging and an utter failure as playwright, poet, and tax collector, has been thrown into a dungeon in Seville to await trial by the Inquisition. There he is dragged before a court of his fellow prisoners who plan to confiscate his few possessions – including the uncompleted manuscript of a novel, Don Quixote.  Cervantes, seeking to save the manuscript, proposes his defense in the form of a play. The “court” agrees, and Cervantes and his manservant  do make-up and costumes, transforming themselves into Don Quixote and Sancho Panza. They then play out the adventure-filled story with the prisoners taking the roles of other characters in their search for “The Impossible Dream.”
