One of the most honored musicals of the American theater, Man of La Mancha was inspired by Miguel de Cervantes’ 17th Century masterpiece Don Quixote. It received five Tony Awards, including one for best musical play, as well as the Drama Critics Circle Award for best musical. Powerful, brutal, funny, and heartbreaking, Man of La Mancha celebrates the perseverance of one man who refuses to relinquish his ideals, and who is determined to see life “not as it is, but as it ought to be.”
Martín worked on the set of "Knights of Newark" where he played Ernesto the father of an immigrant family struggling to survive in a hostile environment.
KNIGHTS IN NEWARK is about about a young girl with a vivid imagination that lives in an apartment building that has been cursed by the black knights that have appeared in her neighborhood. The girl, Marta, makes it her mission to protect her parents from the curse at her own peril, even if it means angering the witch that lives in Apartment 1A...
Knights in Newark is a dystopic fable that addresses the current immigration crisis effecting hundreds of thousands of families in the Unitied States. In the last six months alone the tactics used to enforce questionable deportation laws has seen families separated at a moments notice with no civil or legal protection. The result is an entire generation of legally born children faced with the ongoing threat of having their parents taken away, never to return.
