George Dvorsky to Star in Man of La Mancha

It may have once seemed an “Impossible Dream”, but Broadway performers are now regularly gracing the stage of The Wick Theatre in Boca Raton. For their production of Man of La Mancha they will be bringing in veteran actor George Dvorsky as Don Quixote.  Dvorsky recently starred in New York’s longest running musical The Fantasticks and has appeared on Broadway as The Scarlet Pimpernel.  

Man of La Mancha opened on Broadway in 1965, winning five Tony Awards, including Best Musical. The tale is set in a dungeon, during the Spanish Inquisition, where Miguel de Cervantes gives a dramatic defense by reenacting the story of Don Quixote of La Mancha. The passionate and poignant story of a noble knight who lives in a world of madness and cannot see that chivalry has died. His holy quest is a mission of salvation to find compassion not for himself, but for others. The show features songs that have become Broadway standards and include “Little Bird”, “Dulcinea”, “I’m Only Thinking of Him”, “What Does He Want of Me” and “The Impossible Dream”.

“This is going to be a wonderful production,” said Marilynn A. Wick, Executive Producer. “We are thrilled to have the extremely talented George Dvorsky take the lead role as Cervantes/Don Quixote. And we are delighted to bring back Alix Paige, who wowed the crowds in Swing! We know the audiences will love her as Aldonza/Dulcinea.”  Alix Paige’s co-star in Swing!  Michael Ursua, also returns to the stage in this production as The Padre. Ursua, the musical director for The Wick, is thrilled to be working both on stage and behind-the-scenes for this production. 

Man of La Mancha runs February 26th through March 28th.  Performances are Wednesday through Sunday with matinees at 2:00 p.m. and evening performances beginning at 7:30 p.m.   Tickets are $58-$62.  For reservations or additional information, contact the Wick Theatre at 561-995-2333 or visit us on the web at
