I don't know how this show played for so many years in its first incarnation, or how it's playing so long in this new production! It's hokey and childish, and mostly forgettable.
Hats off for effort, but I didn't enjoy it at all. and some of the...continued

It definitely was "off Broadway"-- tiny theater, not a full audience at all, sparse scenery.... but actors (8 or so) were wonderful, and very professional. Had heard a lot about "Fantasticks", but had never seen it before, although we watched...continued

It was definitely a kooky little musical. In a small and intimate setting where the actors engage the audience. The highlight of the night were the fathers. I thought their performance was ver energetic and captivating.

Many of folks at Will Call had $15 Goldstar tickets, we'd paid $39 (plus $11 in booking charges) so I was a bit concerned, when I pointed this out to the ticket person she gave us front row tickets, literally feet from the actors in this small...continued

My wife and I enjoyed this performance tremendously. Each entertainer, from the Harpist to the wild Indian, gave it his all. We have not laughed as much in years. I'd like to thank everyone who was involved in this show for making this world a...continued

Start ok but then when you thought it's over it's just continue with not much meaning to it , the songs were good , and were funny parts but it has nothing to do with the plot itself . In other words , it was ok but disappointing in some way .

The actors in this production were top notch! If you like a little slapstick, you and your children will enjoy this show. I can see why the Fantasticks has been a longtime running performance. Sadly, I found the theater itself to be pretty run...continued

The cast was very enthusiastic. The story had a nice message. Theater was intimate however some seats need simple maintenance as they squeaked which distracted the audience members.

The show was as good as when I saw it over 40 years ago. Its a
small theater so all the seats are excellent.
