THE FANTASTICKS

Genre: Musical
book and lyrics by Tom Jones, Music by Harvey Schmidt

THE FANTASTICKS is the longest-running musical in the world, running Off-Broadway for 42 years with 17,162 performances. Originally produced in 1960, the show has transcended all generations— from the flower children to Generation X—and charmed audiences with its sweet tale of young love. At the heart of its poetry and subtle theatrical sophistication is a purity and simplicity that transcends cultural barriers. The result is a timeless fable of love that manages to be nostalgic and universal at the same time: the starry-eyed boy and girl next door fall in love, yearn for the dangerous attractions of the world outside, then opt instead for fulfillment in each other's arms and in hearth and home.

co-directed by Dominic Cuskern and Tina Marie Casamento
