The Reviews are In: MAN OF LA MANCHA is “Terrific,” “Full of energy and pathos”

“An enthusiastic recommendation: MAN OF LA MANCHA is definitely worth the trip to Jean’s Playhouse in Lincoln, NH. A vigorous, impassioned cast, inspired by the charismatic, energy-filled performance of Scott Severance as Quixote; a stellar set design with incredible lighting and visual effects … and a tight and attentive musical score performed by a small but extremely capable pit. In its disparate elements as well as taken as a whole, MAN OF LA MANCHA is everything you could want in a professional summer theatre offering, and more. Definitely go and see it while it’s here.”

 

“This show was full of energy and pathos and, in my opinion, one of Severance’s best performances in his long, historic career…. MAN OF LA MANCHA is one of those shows not produced so often these days. There’s no overt sexual connotation and it’s not a bio-pic of the members of a popular rock band. It’s simply classic, well-constructed musical theater. A good choice and a very good production. Go see it!”

 

MAN OF LA MANCHA is the beloved musical about mad knight Don Quixote’s search for “The Impossible Dream.” Miguel de Cervantes, an author imprisoned during the Spanish Inquisition, reenacts the moving story of Don Quixote to win back a package of papers that had been taken from him.  His inspiring and passionate story follows a man on the edge of madness and tells of love and adventures. MAN OF LA MANCHA is playing August 20-25 at 7:30 pm and August 26 at 2:00 pm.

 

Heir to the throne, the young prince Pippin is in search of the secret to true happiness, fulfillment and his own “Corner of the Sky.” He seeks it in the glories of the battlefield, the temptations of the flesh and the intrigues of political power (after disposing of his father King Charlemagne the Great). In the end, though, Pippin finds that happiness lies not in extraordinary endeavors, but rather in the un-extraordinary moments that happen every day. PIPPIN is playing August 13-18 & August 27-29 at 7:30 pm and August 19 at 2:00 pm.

 

Join us for the remainder of our 29th Mainstage season from the award-winning Papermill Theatre Company this fall for DAMES AT SEA (Sep 3-Oct 3) and SAME TIME, NEXT YEAR (Oct 8-17). Admission is $30 for adults, $25 for seniors and $16 for children and students.

Door-Slamming Hilarity at Jean’s Playhouse with Lend Me a Tenor

In September 1934 at the Cleveland Grand Opera Company, Tito Morelli, Il Stupendo, the greatest tenor of his generation, arrives late to appear for his one-night-only performance as Otello.  When he becomes unexpectedly incapacitated, the staff scrambles to find a convincing enough replacement to fool the audience.  When the real Il Stupendo is ready and able to assume his role, events begin to unfold disastrously and hilariously.
