Lyrics by Joe Darion
Man of La Mancha is a remarkable show and one of the great theatre successes of our time. This is a play-within-a-play, based on Cervantes’ Don Quixote, where a poignant story of a dying old man whose impossible dream takes over his mind. It’s All the Same, Dulcinea, I’m Only Thinking of Him, The Impossible Dream, I Really Like Him and Little Bird remain in your thoughts and in your soul well after you see the show. His dream is Everyman’s dream. His tilting at windmills is Everyman’s great adventure. Somehow, the footlights disappear, time is telescoped and the Man of La Mancha speaks for humankind.

We are so very excited to welcome you to Riverside Rep, which is basically good old fashioned musical theater produced with a modern professional twist. To put it more formally, it is our goal to celebrate the traditional themes of traditional musicals by breaking and bending the traditional ways of producing them. In doing so, we highlight what these musicals are really about. The Rep also produces modern musicals that have already challenged tradition, including groundbreaking original works. We celebrate new ways of doing things, and our main guiding principle is innovation.
We also believe in “buying local”. There is very little professional theater that is created in Riverside with local actors, technicians, directors, ushers, etc. that call this home and we provide quality professional opportunities for them. We also search the surrounding areas to find talented professional artists to collaborate in, and compliment, what we are doing. Riverside Rep is building a strong relationship with our community to become a firm beacon of the City of Arts and Innovation.
So welcome! Please join us at the Box at the Fox for every exciting production. Don’t miss what will be one chance in a lifetime after another.
David & Matt
