"Engaging... professional... lovely... incredible... resonant... poignant... surprising... exceptional... gorgeous...
Director Clare Shaffer puts it best when she said '(“La Mancha”) is about the power of communal storytelling-- why and how we tell stories, and the way they shape the communities we live in… they are what unite us, what drive us and what inspire us to dream.' Especially when that dream is an impossible dream." ★★★★★

"Layered... Passionate... Heartwarming... Terrific... Elaborate... Beautiful... The Arlington Players' production of 'Man of La Mancha' is filled with exceptional performances and is quite inspiring. Don't miss it...
When the cast comes together in the end to sing “The Impossible Dream,” I did find myself quite moved. I also found myself looking at the musical in a different light. This isn’t a musical about a man telling a story. It’s about an artist and how his work brings a community together, as both Cervantes and Quixote bring a community of people together with their stories." ★★★★★

"It’s been 33 seasons – half the troupe’s existence – since the Arlington Players staged “Man of La Mancha,” and the opening production of the 2016-17 season proved worth the wait."
