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

The world's longest-running musical returns to New York.

A classic coming-of-age story, The Fantasticks features two meddling, matchmaking fathers who scheme to get their children together. But once the couple is united, the real drama begins!

Featuring the beloved songs "Try to Remember" and "Soon It's Gonna Rain," this is a celebration of love - first love, lost love, and ultimately, true love.

Written by Harvey Schmidt and Tom Jones, The Fantasticks has delighted audiences across the world - including a record shattering 17,162 performances at the Sullivan Street Playhouse, where it made its Off Broadway debut in 1960.

The Fantasticks has been called one of the most 'child-friendly' productions currently on Broadway! So whether it's an old favorite or your first time, no matter your age, you won't want to miss this timeless show that's certain to steal your heart!
