The Fantasticks

2hr. 5min. (1 intermission)


This funny boy-meets-girl musical, with book and lyrics by Tom Jones and music by Harvey Schmidt, recently celebrated 20,000 performances in New York City. The Fantasticks is a captivating and simple love story about a girl, a boy, two fathers, and a wall. The audience uses its imagination to accompany the narrator as he creates a world of moonlight and magic, followed by pain and disillusionment. Ultimately, the boy and girl find their way back home and to one another. The score, which includes "Try to Remember," "They Were You," and "Soon It's Gonna Rain," is as timeless as the story itself.

Note: The Fantasticks offers guided backstage tours at all performances!
