Sheen, whose long film and TV career includes "Apocalypse Now," "The Execution of Private Slovik," "Kennedy" and "The West Wing," also worked on Broadway. He made his Broadway debut in the short-lived Never Live Over a Pretzel Factory in 1964, but came into his own in the original cast of the Pulitzer Prize-winning drama The Subject Was Roses. None of his previous professional stage credits include musicals.
Man of La Mancha, the musical adaptation of the classic novel "Don Quixote," won the 1966 Tony Award as Best Musical. The Mitch Leigh/Joe Darion score includes the standard "The Quest (The Impossible Dream)," which is being sung by Sheen in this staging.
The show is produced by Pepperdine's Center for Faith and Learning at 7 PM at the Smothers Theatre in Malibu. Peter Torsiello serves as musical director.
