Nicholas Lyndhurst (Only Fools and Horses) and Cassidy Janson (Beautiful: The Carole King Story) have joined Kelsey Grammer and Danielle de Niese in the London Coliseum’s upcoming production of musical Man of La Mancha.
The show, which runs from 26th April to 8th June 2019, will see Lyndhurst play the Innkeeper and the Captain while Janson will share the role of Aldonza and Dulcinea with Danielle de Niese.
In a 16th century dungeon Cervantes and his man servant await trial from the Spanish Inquisition. In his possession he has a trunk carrying an unfinished novel, Don Quixote. As prisoners attempt to steal his possessions, Cervantes embarks on acting out his novel as his defence, transforming himself into Alonso Quijano.
Quijano, deluded, believes he is a knight errant, renames himself Don Quixote de la Mancha, and sets off on a fantastical quest with his man servant Sancho Panza.
Chivalry abounds in this classic tale of knighthood, love, loyalty and adventure.
Man of La Mancha is produced by Michael Linnit and Michael Grade. The show will be performed with ENO’s 35 piece orchestra.
The show will be directed by Lonny Price (Sunset Boulevard) with music by Mitch Leigh, lyrics by Joe Darion and book by Dale Wasserman.
