Performances begin tonight of ‘La Mancha’

The Theatre by the Sea will hold a series of performances of the Tony Award-winning musical “Man of La Mancha” beginning tonight – Thursday, June 22 – and ending on July 16.

The play is a musical within a play in which Miguel de Cervantes has been imprisoned by the Spanish Inquisition. Seeking to save his uncompleted novel from confiscation, he dramatically pleads his case by reenacting the story of Don Quixote of La Mancha, the passionate and poignant tale of a noble knight who lives in a world of madness and cannot see that chivalry has died.

Performance times include Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays at 8 p.m.; Thursdays at 2 p.m.; Saturdays at 4:30 and 8:30 p.m.; Sundays at 5 p.m.; Sunday, June 5, at 3 and 8 p.m.; and Wednesday, June 13, at 2 p.m. Tickets cost between $39 and $54.
