Description

Now playing at The Retro Dome, it’s The Fantasticks, the funny, romantic musical comedy about first love, lost love and – eventually – true love.  A handsome narrator sets the scene for Matt and Luisa, teenagers who fall in love at first sight.  What follows is a mix of hilarious comedy, wild adventure and gorgeous music. Winner of the Tony Honor for Excellence in the Theater, The Fantasticks includes the hit songs “Try To Remember” and “Soon It’s Gonna Rain” in a score as timeless as its story.
