A Memorable Story of Love and Family, The Fantasticks Has Been Long-Running for a Reason

Celebrate the love of theatre itself with this gem! This Friday, Stages Repertory Theatre challenges you to "Try to Remember” a time when The Fantasticks wasn't enchanting audiences around the globe. Check it out live on stage on February 7th at 8:00 p.m.!

The Fantasticks is the longest-running musical in the world and with good reason: at the heart of its breathtaking 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 Fantasticks is a funny and romantic musical about a boy, a girl, and their two fathers who try to keep them apart. The narrator, El Gallo, 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 tale is punctuated by a bountiful series of catchy, memorable songs, many of which have become classics.
