Man of La Mancha tickets

The producers who brought you the smash hit productions of Sweeney Todd, Sunset Boulevard, Carousel and Chess present the Tony-award winning musical Man of La Mancha, at the London Coliseum this spring.
Featuring the legendary song, The Impossible Dream (The Quest), Man of La Mancha is inspired by Miguel de Cervantes’s masterpiece novel Don Quixote. This uplifting, timeless tale stars Kelsey Grammer, Danielle de Niese, Nicholas Lyndhurst and Cassidy Janson, for a limited 6 week season.
Described by esteemed American critic Edward P. Morgan as ‘One of the most magnificently moving pieces I have ever seen on any stage’, and celebrated throughout the world, Man of La Mancha at last returns to the West End in a new production for the first time in 50 years. Performed on the magnificent stage at the London Coliseum with the ENO’s 35-piece orchestra, it is set to be the theatrical event of the year.
Join Don Quixote as he chases his impossible dream, to pursue the beautiful princess Dulcinea – and a few windmills. Determined to uphold all that is good and right at a time when the odds are stacked against him, Quixote’s courage is abounding, and we are all compelled to follow his unreachable star.
Loved it, not normally one for musicals but this one had me from (nearly the) start to (definately the) finish! Kelsey grammer can sing, story was brilliant-thanks to cevice, Rodney's cameo was subtle and therefore perfect. Couple funny moments but not badly overloaded like a lot of west end shows. And was upgraded to some great seats. All in all I had a great night
This musical was fantastic in every way. Don Quixote is an unforgettable character in Cervantes' book and Kelsey Grammer portrayed his range of emotions brilliantly- in both speech and song. I cried frequently as he really got to me! I have seen both leading ladies and although Dulcinea was portrayed slightly differently, both were excellent. Orchestra and conductor set the scene with exceptional music.
Kelsey Grammer is no Pavarotti, but nor does he pretend to be. He gave an honest, enjoyable and exuberant performance, ably backed by a fine cast. The standing ovation at the end of the Wednesday matinee was well deserved.
Brilliant, perfect comic timing from both Nicholas Lyndhurst and Kelsey Grammar (who knew he had that voice?) Highly recommended
What a fantastic performance and experience at the London coliseum! Thank you for upgrading our tickets! The cast were superb!
Really enjoyable show..Great performance from all the cast ..Voices of the main three characters on point....Not to be missed.....
Fantastic performance!!great cast, Kelsey Grammar exceptional, good production, not to be missed!!
After reading the poor reviews was surprised how good this was. Theatre was full for a Wednesday evening. Just goes to show dont always believe what the theatre critics write - might not suit them but obviously suits lots of regular theatre goers !
Music and comedic elements great. Very entertaining all round.
What an amazing superb show and exceeded our expectations! Great music, great acting, brought the story alive. Thoroughly enjoyed it. Would recommend it.
Great to see this show return Fabulous cast and production would thoroughly recommend
Man of La Mancha seems to em to be a difficult work to stage and as a result not all the performances or scenes are of even quality. I did however much enjoy the "manservant's" performance and that of the ensemble
Thoroughly enjoyed Man of La Mancha. Thought Kelsey Grammar was excellent as were all the cast but especially Kelsey Grammar as he has never performed on the London stage before and is not known for singing.
Really enjoyed this musical. Very funny and amazing voices!
Excellent production. Engaging, exciting and well produced.
I shed more than a tear but left smiling !!! An excellent all round production, beautifully performed by all.an absolute pleasure to be there. Thank you kindly everyone
We thoroughly enjoyed the show. The music was fantastic and the cast were marvellous. I can@t recommend this show enough. A great night out.
Up in the balcony its very difficult to see when the actors are close to the stage edge. The performance was very well done with a modern twist and very enjoyable.
I’m biased as it’s one of my favourites for theme and music and is so rarely even heard of. Female lead of Danielle de Niese stole the show and Kelsey Grammer’s male lead had wonderful stage presence (not a professional singer so forgiven a few bum notes here and there). I cried at the emotional and strong finale. Loved it.
The singing was good but as for the rest, it was a non event. Didn’t feel any connection to the actors and the story didn’t flow well. Most of the cast spent their time on stage sitting staring at the wall.
Very entertaining. The critic reviews have been very unfair. All the cast were amazing!
A surprising array of TV actors amongst the outstanding members of the ENO entertained with a shortened version of the Hollywood classic. Some new songs added variety, but for fans of Peter O'Toole as the Man of La Mancha close enough. Not a dry eye in the house at the end.
well as not having any prior knowledge of the show I went with trepidation after reading some press reviews that were not that good, but oh what a show , great cast and set and Kelsey Grammer was outstanding as the lead,he gave it his all as did all of the entire cast, Peter Polycarpo as usual his brilliant self and Danielle de Niese note perfect with a beautiful voice and the biggest surprise to me was the very much underestimated and fine actor in any role , Nicholas Lyndhurst perfect timing and he showed us another bow to his large arrow collection ,he can sing as well, at the end a standing ovation , women and men in floods of tears and the best Saturday ive spent in years , don't miss it
I saw the first run of Man of La Mancha years ago in New York, because I was (and still am) a Richard Kiley fan. And, during this production, I realised that all I could remember was the songs. I had no memory of the script and can't remember laughing at the dialogue or getting choked up at the end. Whoever did the casting for the ENO production certainly knew what he was doing - Nicholas Lyndhurst was simply phenomenal.
Excellent acting, orchestra, performance and singing. An enjoyable and well produced performance.
always challenging to produce a musical that originated in 1965. However, the dance rape scene is inappropriate for a modern audience and adds nothing to the narrative. It was an interesting way of framing Cervantes' story but Grammer's singing occasionally flat and his phrasing was reminiscent of Frasier; he was out sung by the minor characters.
A great version of the classic Don Quijote, always thought provoking with very moving scenes. Didn't know Kelsey Grammer could sing and he does a nice job. An amazing opportunity to see a top quality performance with very affordable tickets.
We thoroughly enjoyed the show it was funny and the actors were great. Just a shame the theatre was not full, but did not spoil the performance.
I thought that the show was very emotional, well acted with lovely singing and orchestra. Thoroughly enjoyable afternoon. I would recommend everyone to see this. Kelsey Grammar was wonderful The London Coliseum is such a beautiful theatre.
Execellent, thoroughly enjoyed.
Thoroughly enjoyed, despite negative press reviews. Cast excellent.
Front row seat for this fantastic show,I'd read mixed reviews but shouldn't have worried,a fantastic cast but stand out for me was Peter Polycarpou and Kelsey Grammer's voice was super, totally recommend
Both my husband and I thoroughly enjoyed the performance on Wednesday the 8th of May. We travelled down from Yorkshire for the day. The setting of the story was not expected at first, set within the near future but it worked really well. The cast skilfully transformed into the world of Don Quixote. All the performances were excellent. I had read a 'professional' review before watching the show and am so glad that I did not let it influence my decision to see the play. The standard of performance by all the cast was excellent. Had I been able I would have joined the majority of the audience in a standing ovation. As for Nicholas Lyndhurst and Kelsey Crammer, within moments I forgot who they were and they were the characters they were portraiting. As to the song To Dream the Impossible Dream, I found Kelsey Crammer's version full of feeling, strong and we'll in keeping with the character. It was great to be able to see well known actors in a show and to be able to accept them as the characters they portrayed and not themselves hogging the limelight. I was able to get really into the storyline. I was a little apprehensive about going as my arthritis can very painful and we could not afford the better seats but the performance made everything well worth it. Congratulations to the whole cast and thank you for a great afternoon and lovely memories to bring home.
Worth many more than 2 stars, I was thrilled with all the performances, it was super.
My family and I thoroughly enjoyed this amazing performance. Exceeded our expectations. The cast were very good with some outstanding performances.
Went to see this show yesterday but was rather disappointed. It seemed to lack a little cohesion and really needed a very strong performance from the leading role, which unfortunately did not happen. The singing from the chorus cast was good and I thought they were rather wasted in their lack of opportunity to act and sing.
Singing was great thru out. The casting for Don Quixote turned out to be a very pleasant surprise since I knew him from US TV.Disappointed with the set and costume
Loved this light hearted musical, great cast who put in 100%.
I’ve thought long and hard about this review, and seen some less than favourable reviews from “Proffesionals” in well known publications, however I feel they are missing the true essence of this piece. Escapism. This is a golden age musical, filled with heavy language, breathtaking music and wonderful lyrics to iconic songs that have transcend the ages. Comparing this musical to say Hamilton is unnecessary and pointless. I do however, agree that if this was a brand new musical opening for the modern age it would suffer, but it didn’t so relax. It transports you back to a brilliant time when glorious scores and fantasy ruled the stage. The cast. The cast are the true stars of this revival, at the shows healm the incomparable Kelsey Grammer. With his unmistakable voice and charm he swans through his mind effortlessly creating rich and details scenes with nothing more than his imagination, and we are lucky enough to go on the journey with him. I feel if you are expecting a rich baritone voice singing over the score with powerful notes and effortless breathing, think again. His age and vulnerability in the role adds to its charm. It’s a masterclass in performing arts from one of the stage and screen legends. If your looking for outstanding vocals, look no further than Danielle de Niese. Simply outstanding, effortless and raw. If you could say such s thing she is a Rock Star in the stage with beauty and a power that leaves you breathless. You may never get the chance to see this show again so what are you waiting for, be transported back and let your imagination run wild.
The singing was good stars played a good part but unfortunately found the story very difficult to follow as did many people around us At the interval someone behind me said it’s 9pm we have heard the song let’s go !! Sad but true
Very disappointing- left at the interval. Poor songs, silly story if you could follow it and Kelsey G appeared to have lead in his boots. More suitable for a kids pantomime.
We were completely bowled over and captivated by the performance. Great staging, music and acting. Made us laugh a lot and cry a little.
Last night we were privileged to attend the musical of Man of La Mancha with Kelsey Grammer, a long time favourite actor of our family. He was exceptional, as was the entire cast, crew and orchestra. The evening was even more special due to the location -- the amazingly spectacular London Coliseum. Thanks to the entire staff at the Coliseum for making us all feel so welcome - a truly first-class evening out!
Wonderful. I totally felt the emotion of the singing and of the lovely music. I really would recommend this production.
The show was tremendous and heartwarming. Kelsey Grammer was fabulous. The orchestra and music wonderful. Sadly my tickets weren't waiting for me at the box office which caused some distress. One of the assistants said there was nothing she could do. Luckily the other lady found the booking and issued the tickets.
Beautiful music, great songs, moving, beautifully sung. Kelsey Grammar certainly has stage presence & delivers superbly. The leading lady has a great voice. There was a standing ovation from the audience at the end - deservedly so.
The show was cancelled due to a power cut. They issued a customer service number to re-book. However, when I called the number it was not in operation! I therefore emailed them and they sent an alternative number. When I called that number, I was on hold for 10 minutes before the answer machine suggested that an email should be sent. It has therefore been impossible to reschedule, and I'm still waiting for a refund.
This was so well put together, this production is both vibrant and competent.. Terrific songs , terrrific orchestra and a very well balanced group of actors. Kelsey Grammer makes a great Don Quixote- he is not the angular dreamer we usual imagine but has a real warmth and conveys the sense of injustice expected of the character. His age gives him authenticity rather than detracting from the role.. All the principals were so good and well cast. I did find the rape scene rather prolonged and would like to see it cut. It was a simple plot to follow but one unfamiliar with British audiences. Give it a go . There was a standing ovation when I went and I would love to go back again. I loved it.
As many people, I booked the show to see Kelsey Grammer as a huge Frasier fan. His performance does not disappoint, what a stage presence, and what a voice! A must see for any Kelsey Grammer fan. Nicholas Lindhurst was also fantastic, just wish he had a bigger part! The costumes were also excellent.
Enjoyed this production very much. Kept my attention throughout. Came out of theatre smiling and humming songs.
