Man From La Mancha
The adapted production of Cervantes’ classic ‘Man of La Mancha’ as a musical sounds quite bonkers, but it works! The enduring appeal of Don Quixote and his side kick Sancho Panza shall never be ending, as we all seek escape from our daily lives and it’s pressures. The music can be a tad ‘Broadway’-like and milks it a bit at times, but it fits, whilst ’The Impossible Dream’ is still a tear jerker (not many people know that this particular song actually comes from this particular musical).
Kelsey Grammer as Don Quixote is an inspired cast – who knew that the psychiatrist from Cheers had such a great singing voice! Cassidy Janson, our Aldonza/Dulcinea of that night’s performance, delivered an incredibly sensitive performance and national treasure Nicholas Lyndhurst, was great in the role of the Governor and the Innkeeper – all in all a very enjoyable experience and a great theatre night out, with a cast, that’s unique to London’s West End.
