The Fantasticks is a reverse Romeo and Juliet story by Tom Jones and Harvey Schmidt. It is the longest running musical in history. It marked the beginning of the end of the Rodgers and Hammerstein revolution, looking back to some of the great elemental myths but also looking forward to the concept musicals to come. The Fantasticks is everything the Beat poets believed in, cynical, funny, ironic, and yet deeply truthful and emotional, set to a pulsing, driving jazz score.
