‘Man of La Mancha” is the latest classical musical to be scaled down for a smaller orchestra, a smaller cast and a more intimate presentation by adventurous director Mark Lamos at the Westport Country Playhouse Sept. 25 through Oct. 13.
Previously, Lamos has staged “She Loves Me,” “Into the Woods” and “Camelot” in Westport.

Performances are Tuesday at 7 p.m.; Wednesday at 2 and 8 p.m.; Thursday and Friday at 8 p.m.; Saturday at 3 and 8 p.m.; and Sunday at 3 p.m. Tickets are $25 to $70. 888-927-7529 and westportplayhouse.org.
