Man of La Mancha is sponsored by Cynthia and Randolph Nelson and is sponsored in part by Bonnie and Terry Burman and The Feigenbaum Foundation.

“Helmed by artistic director Julianne Boyd, a fine Barrington Stage Company production of “La Mancha’’ hits the mark.” ~The Boston Globe

“gorgeous…gloriously stunning…Broadway-caliber” ~Talkin’ Broadway

“Superlative…captivating…stirring… The ever-excellent Jeff McCarthy is compelling as Cervantes and Don Quixote” ~Albany Times Union

“…as vital and up-to-the-minute a piece of theater as you will see all summer” ~The Rogovoy Report

“McCarthy’s performance is one of the most exciting musical theatre performances I’ve seen in a long time.” His ‘Impossible Dream’ “is hauntingly moving, and a first class showstopper.” ~Westfield News

“Both intimate and spectacular…a thrilling piece of theatre…a must see for any serious theatre-goer” ~Berkshire On Stage

“…director Julianne Boyd has assembled a smart, resourceful and accomplished cast, beginning with McCarthy, for whom this dual leading role of Cervantes/Quixote seems tailor-made.” ~The Berkshire Eagle

“Great musical theatre…Jeff McCarthy was magnificent…Felicia Boswell who played Dulcinea was outstanding…Tom Alan Robbins as Sancho Panza, Don Quixote’s manservant, was excellent” ~The Berkshire Record

“Outstanding…this is truly a summer theater treat” ~ WAMC Northeast Public Radio

“…dream production…McCarthy is perfectly cast… It’s no secret that [he] can sing, and he does her with superb aplomb, capturing the richness of the score and the earnestness of the emotion” ~Hartford/Springfield Examiner

“…a magical tour de force…Barrington Stage Company has magnificently resuscitated and reanimated Man of La Mancha. It’s such an emotionally rich and intensely satisfying production that you leave the theater thinking that Man of La Mancha may be one of the most underrated musicals of all time.” ~Rural Intelligence

“A marvelously robust revival…If you revel in witty lyrics and soaring melodies as I do, you will love this Man of La Mancha. ~Arts Fuse

“McCarthy…dazzles the audience with a superb display of his acting prowess and vocal range…a fantastic production” ~Berkshire Family Focus
