It's hard to resist The Fantasticks' vintage charm: unamplified actors, effects like confetti snow and sequined rain, and a sweetly melodic score.

The Fantasticks,
May 27, 2010
reviewer: from Leonia, NJ
I've seen this play at least nine times when it was showing at Sullivan Street Playhouse; and now that it has moved to midtown I'll love to see it again. The music is superb and the cast is excellent. I highly recommend this play...a simplest way of theater yet it's extremely entertaining. Buy your tickets now, bring your whole family. I guarantee you want to go back for more. The show is FANTASTICK.

My 15-year-old daughter and I loved it. It was halirious! Great cast. You don't need to spend $180 at one of the bigger theaters to see a great show. This is a gem.

Fantastic Fantasticks!,
May 05, 2013
reviewer: from Columbia, Maryland
I would highly recommend this show! It is dramatic, passionate, hilariously funny and touches the heart and soul. I have seen it four times and will be seeing it a fifth time and each time it is as great as the previous. The current cast as well as the previous casts during the 2012-2013 season has been dynamic in how they engaged the audience and interacted with each other.


I was definitely pleased with my seats--I was in the center orchestra area and felt like I was a part of the show, that is how the cast made me feel! I would take my mother, children and anyone who would be interested in having a fun filled, laughter filled evening.


And yes I definitely found the theater very conveniently located to a wonderful restaurant--O'Lunney's Restaurant/Pub--delicious food. So an awesome show followed by awesome food or awesome food followed by an awesome show. Loved every moment of my experiences in seeing the Fantasticks.

A true DELIGHT!,
Jul 07, 2013
reviewer: from London, UK, etc.
My family and I have been seeing musicals for more than 17 years but for whatever reason never saw The Fantasticks, instead opting for new shows or the latest hot ticket. Thankfully that has now been corrected in a most delightful way. This intimate theatre and awesome cast presented this timeless classic in memorable fashion. If you have never seen this show, do it NOW. If you have seen it, see it again. We will, despite having no problem "trying to remember" the joyful fun we had! Thank you!
