In this modern masterwork -- critically praised as a unique mix of Oscar Wilde and Bertolt Brecht -- the great Irish writer George Bernard Shaw pits a military industrialist against his crusading daughter. She's a Salvation Army major; he's an arms manufacturer and whiskey distiller -- on certain issues, they could not disagree more. But when he begins donating money to her organization, matters come to a head as the characters grapple with questions of business, faith, family and philanthropy. After 16 years, A.C.T. brings Shaw back to the stage with this co-production with Theatre Calgary, one of A.C.T.'s favorite Canadian collaborators, featuring an international cast of Canadian and American actors.

The play was very entertaining and amusing. All the actors were good and played their parts very well. I have to comment on the 'mute' who did an excellent job of always being 'in character.' His facial expressions were priceless! Loved it.
Quotes & Highlights
- "Delightful!" --New York Times
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.
