"The Fantasticks", Book & Lyrics by Tom Jones, Music by Harvey Schmidt

 
A timeless fable of love, “The Fantasticks,” by Tom Jones and Harvey Schmidt, is the world's longest running musical, having run for over 52 years in Manhattan with 17,162 performances, entrancing generations of audiences the world over. Hailed as "A Gem" by The Wall Street Journal, “The Fantasticks” is a funny and romantic musical about a boy, a girl, two fathers, and a wall. The narrator invites the audience to join the cast on a journey of imagination, music, moonlight, and magic as the girl and boy fall in love, grow apart, and finally find their way back to each other after realizing the truth in El Gallo's words that "without a hurt, the heart is hollow." The famous score includes the classics “Try To Remember,” “They Were You,” and “Soon It's Gonna Rain.”
