Kelsey Grammer and Danielle de Niese will star in Man of La Mancha
Now, he is making his West End debut as the lead in the Coliseum's production of Man of La Mancha. The 1965 musical was inspired by Miguel de Cervantes’ 17th century novel Don Quixote. The musical follows a fictionalised version of Cervantes as he awaits trial during the Spanish Inquisition. When threatened by the other prisoners, Cervantes transforms himself into Don Quixote, re-enacting his tale as a play within a play in order to defend himself. Grammer will star as Cervantes opposite international opera star Danielle de Niese, who recently appeared on Desert Island Disks. Lonny Price, best known for the Coliseum’s revival of Sunset Boulevard in 2016, will direct the production.
Man of La Mancha has been adapted into over 20 languages and is known worldwide, mainly due to its principal song ‘The Impossible Dream’, which has been covered by the likes of Frank Sinatra, Susan Boyle and Alfie Boe. The classic tale of chivalry and knighthood will have a six-week limited run, so book in advance to ensure you do not miss out!
