John Davidson, the celebrated actor who starred as Matt in the 1964 Hallmark Hall of Fame version of The Fantasticks, will join the cast of the Off-Broadway production of The Fantasticks on June 1 for a limited engagement in the role of Henry, The Old Actor.

A modern twist on Romeo and Juliet, The Fantasticks (music by Harvey Schmidt, book/lyrics/direction by Tom Jones) is the quintessential story of a boyfriend and girlfriend who quickly grow apart when they realize they want to experience the world. What follows is a hilarious and heartwarming story appropriate for all ages. The score, which includes the hit songs "Try To Remember", "Soon It's Gonna Rain" and "They Were You", is as timeless as the story itself.

Davidson will join the cast on June 1 for 19 performances through June 16. The actor's Broadway credits include Able Frake in State Fair and Bert Lahr's son in Foxy. He received the Theater Guild Award for his portrayal of Curly in the New York City Center's revival of Oklahoma. Off-Broadway credits include High Infidelity with Morgan Fairchild.

The cast of The Fantasticks also features Aaron Carter, Edward Watts, Bill Bateman, Tom Flagg, Heidi Giberson, Matt Leisy, Michael Nostrand, Dan Sharkey, Juliette Trafton and Charles West.
