Directors Roundtable Backdrops

Given the emphasis on storytelling in Man of La Mancha, most productions utilize a single set in the form of the prison where Cervantes awaits trial and add set pieces to create other locations as the story unfolds. DARK CAVERN DUNGEON is deep, dark underground fortress, complete with wrought iron gates and torches. For a similar look, but down a long, steep staircase instead, consider PHANTOM'S GROTTO. Or, for a different look with a similar underground feel, use DRAGON'S LAIR GRAYSTONE. FIELD STONE WALL, with its large, irregular stones, is the most neutral option and will transform from location to location easily. For a set design that's not located quite so far underground, use vibrant FIRE SKY behind your set pieces. With TheatreWorld Backdrops, designing your production of Man of La Mancha is anything but an "impossible dream"!

Man of La Mancha is one of the world’s most popular musicals. Inspired by Miguel de Cervantes’ seventeenth-century masterwork Don Quixote and set during the Spanish Inquisition, the original 1965 production won five Tony Awards, including Best Musical. Cervantes is in prison awaiting trial during the Spanish Inquisition. He and his fellow prisoners perform a play-within-a-play, telling the story of the elderly Alonso Quijana, who renames himself "Don Quixote" and goes on a quest to right all wrongs in the world.
