Opening Night for Pendragon Theatre's "Man of La Mantra" was greeted with a sold-out performance that triumphed with a standing ovation. It is no wonder. Pendragon Theatre's Artistic Director Karen Lordi-Kirkham has gathered a gold mine of talent for Pendragon's most recent hit, "Man of La Mancha." This charming play within a play, written by Dale Wasserman with music by Mitch Leigh and lyrics by Joe Darion, uses Miquel De Cervantes's classic novel "Don Quixote" as a platform to switch between a grim prison setting during the Spanish Inquisition to the imaginings of Don Quixote's world where chivalry is not dead.
