The Fantasticks, by Tom Jones & Harvey Schmidt, is the world's longest running musical – running for over 50 years in Manhattan and entrancing generations of audiences the world over. The Fantasticks is a funny and romantic musical about a boy, a girl, two fathers and a wall. The narrator asks the audience to use their imagination and follow him into a world of moonlight and magic. The boy and the girl 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, which includes the classics Try To Remember, They Were You, and Soon It's Gonna Rain, is as timeless as the story itself. Rated PG.
