Connecticut Repertory Theatre has a formidable summer season lined up, starting with its production of the Dale Wasserman-penned Man of La Mancha opening on Thursday, the story of the imprisoned Miguel de Cervantes during the heyday of the Spanish Inquisition. Cervantes summons the story of the famous Don Quixote (played by Broadway vet Terrence Mann, pictured on the right) to defend himself, and his tale is populated by a number of memorable characters, including Sancho Panza (played by Richard Ruiz, center) and Aldonza (Alix Paige, left). It's all set to a dazzling Latin-esque score by Mitch Leigh and Joe Darion.

June 7-16, $10-$42, Harriet S. Jorgensen Theatre, 802 Bolton Road, Unit 1127, Storrs, (860) 486-2113, crt.uconn.edu.
