WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
Recently celebrating 20,000 performances in NYC- The romantic, funny "boy meets girl" tale, with book and lyrics by Tom Jones and music by Harvey Schmidt. The Fantasticks is a captivating and simple love story about a boy, a girl, two fathers and a wall. The audience uses its imagination to follow El Gallo 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. The Fantasticks offers guided backstage tours at all performances! Call 212-921-7862 for details.
