About the Show

The Fantasticks, by Harvey Schmidt and Tom Jones, is the world’s longest running musical, running for over 52 years in Manhattan and entrancing generations of audiences the world over.  It is a funny and romantic chamber musical that tells the deceptively uncomplicated story of a boy, a girl, their fathers (who plot to get them together by keeping them apart), and a wall. At the heart of its breathtaking poetry and subtle theatrical sophistication is a purity and simplicity that transcends cultural barriers.  The result is a timeless fable of love that is nostalgic and universal at the same time. The famous score, which includes the classics “Try to Remember,” “They Were You,” and “Soon It’s Gonna Rain,” is as timeless as the story itself.
