"Man of La Mancha" is the 1965 musical adapted from Wasserman's non-musical 1959 teleplay I, Don Quixote, which was in turn inspired by Miguel de Cervantes's seventeenth century masterpiece 'Don Quixote'. It tells the story of the "mad" knight, Don Quixote, as a play within a play, performed by Cervantes and his fellow prisoners as he awaits a hearing with the Spanish Inquisition.

For The Record:

 

“Man of La Mancha” opened under the auspices of Albert W Selden & Hal James in Nov 1965 at the ANTA Washington Square Theater. It was staged by Albert Marre, and the cast was headed by Richard Kiley, Joan Diener & Irving Jacobson.
