About this show

The Walnut Street Theatre presents The Fantasticks by Tom Jones. Inspired by Edmund Rostand's play, Les Romanesques, two fathers scheme to get their respective children to fall in love. Knowing their kids will resist an arranged marriage, they use reverse psychology and pretend to be feuding. They build a wall between their two houses, and forbid their children to speak to each other. Will their plan work? There are feuds, disguises, kidnappings and rescues. The score features classic songs that include "Try to Remember" and "Soon It's Gonna Rain." Music by Harvey Schmidt.
