Two-time Tony Award winner John Cullum will star as Don Quixote in the touring production of "Man of La Mancha" coming to the Lyric Opera House from May 23 to June 4. Though he is currently best known as bartender Holling Vincoeur on CBS' "Northern Exposure," Cullum has a long and distinguished stage career that includes playing Quixote in the original Broadway production of "La Mancha."
He won Tony Awards in 1975 for "Shenandoah" and in 1978 for "On the Twentieth Century." His most recent Broadway credit was Andrew Lloyd Webber's "Aspects of Love." Cullum last appeared in Baltimore in 1986, when he starred in "Cyrano de Bergerac" at the Mechanic Theatre.
