Disappointed in show... debated whether to stay for 2nd act. Did, and it wasn't any better than first act. Kudos, though, to cast... they worked hard and did a good job in.

I enjoyed this production - not as good as some I've seen, but satisfactory all around. the voices are fabulous. I found the stage being cluttered (at the edges and behind) with what appeared to be pieces from other productions, somewhat...continued

There were six of us at the event and we felt that the show was good in general...the singers were very good. But, the two "kidnappers" were very much over acted. They were more of a distraction than anything else.

Quotes & Highlights

See The Fantasticks’ official website.


Talk about a time-proven audience-pleaser! “Try To Remember” a time when this romantic charmer wasn’t enchanting audiences around the world. The Fantasticks is the longest-running musical production in the world, and with good reason: at the heart of its breathtaking poetry and subtle theatrical sophistication are a purity and simplicity that transcend cultural barriers. The result is a timeless fable of love that manages to be nostalgic and universal at the same time.
