The Fantasticks is the longest-running musical in the world, and with good reason: at the heart of its breathtaking poetry and subtle theatrical sophistication is a purity and simplicity that transcends cultural barriers. Told through classic love songs including “Try To Remember” and “Soon It’s Gonna Rain,” the starry-eyed boy and girl next door fall in love, yearn for the dangerous attractions of the world outside, then opt instead for fulfillment in each other’s arms. The result is a timeless fable of love that manages to be nostalgic and universal at the same time.
