Steps Off Broadway announces their next production, The Fantasticks, by Tom Jones & Harvey Schmidt. This is the world’s longest running musical, running for over 52 years in Manhattan, and has been entrancing and mesmerizing generations of audiences the world over. It has been called one of the most charming and enchanting shows ever written.
The Fantasticks is a funny, romantic musical about a boy, a girl, two fathers and a wall. The narrator asks the audience to use their imagination and follow him into a world of moonlight and magic. The boy and the girl fall in love, grow apart, and finally find their way back to each other after realizing the truth in El Gallo’s words that “without a hurt, the heart is hollow”. The show features a delightful score that includes the hit songs, “Try To Remember”, “Soon It’s Gonna Rain” and the heartbreaking, “They Were You”.
This production has been designed and cleverly staged by the internationally acclaimed director, Michael La Fleur, who has worked with some of the world’s biggest stars and entertainment companies, including Celine Dion, Sarah Brightman, Disney, Universal and celebrated venues around the globe. The Fantasticks stars David Sackal, Aubrie Bagdasarian, Nathan Krishnaswami, Michael Geary, Ryan Levarone, and Gabby Kane.
