THE FANTASTICKS By Harvey Smidt and Tom Jones
There is a curious paradox that no one can explain. Who understands the secret of the reaping of the grain? Who understands why Spring is born out of Winters laboring pain, or why we must all die a bit before we grow again?
The Fantasticks is the worlds longest-running musical and the longest-running uninterrupted show of any kind in the United States playing for 42 years at the Sullivan Street Playhouse for 17, 162 performances! It closed in 2002.
At the heart of its breathtaking poetry and subtle theatrical sophistication is a purity and simplicity that transcends cultural barriers. The result is a timeless fable of love that manages to be nostalgic and universal at the same time.
Fantasticks delivers themessage that although life is complex and full of obstacles, it is possible for people to persevere and find their way. What make The Fantasticks so timeless is that everyone of all ages and situations can take something away from the musical
The Fantasticks is an intimate show that may be performed in virtually any space, engaging the audiences imagination and showcasing a strong ensemble cast. Its moving tale of young lovers who become disillusioned, only to discover a more mature, meaningful love is punctuated by a bountiful series of catchy, memorable songs, many of which have become classics.
