About The Event

Dangerous Signs presents Man Of La Mancha

book by Dale Wasserman, lyrics by Joe Darion, and music by Mitch Leigh

Directed by Luane Davis Haggerty

Man of La Mancha is the musical story of Don Quixote. In our production Deaf and hearing will combine on stage. Questioning if it is madness to hope for the best of people, this triumphant production will leave you dreaming the impossible dream.

Inspired by Cervantes' classic story of Don Quixote, one of literature’s greatest novels and a celebration of Spanish culture, this musical imagines Cervantes and a prisoner who must try to save his own llife and those of others by playing out his manuscript of the story of the “mad” knight Don Quixote and his quest to revive chivalry and bring justice to the world. Accompanied by his squire, Sancho, and his “lady”, Aldonza, he journeys through his fantasy world, believing that true madness is to see life as it is and not as it should be. In our production Deaf and hearing will combine on stage expanding the double reality already in the script of a harsh real life of prison (issues of DACA and dreamers are obvious) and the dream world of hope Don Quixote insists upon. Is he crazy to have that kind of hope in this world? Maybe...our production features a triumphant story of redemption and forgiveness and a score of beloved songs accompanied by live musicians. Performed in ASL and English with a diverse cast, this production will leave you dreaming the impossible dream.

We will perform this theatrical story in American Sign Language (ASL). This production is directed by Luane Davis Haggerty, NTID faculty in Department of Cultural Studies at NTID. There will be deaf/hard of hearing actors along the voicers (hearing actors) during the show. You will see unique presentation that will show how the actors perform with the use of American Sign Language while hearing, the voicers, speak the English words. It also incorporates a live band that will go along the songs in the play.
