Steps Off Broadway Extends THE FANTASTICKS Through June 8
Steps Off Broadway announces that they have extended the run of their current production, The Fantasticks, by Tom Jones & Harvey Schmidt. This is the world's longest running musical, running for over 52 years in Manhattan and around the world. 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 "They Were You".
Staged by the internationally acclaimed director, Michael La Fleur, The Fantasticks is told through cleverly used theatrical traditions and comedy bits taken from the world of Vaudeville, Carnival Sideshow and the classics. People are raving about this highly inventive production that boasts a gifted company of singers and comedians, including David Sackal, Aubrie Bagdasarian, Nathan Krishnaswami, Michael Geary, Ryan Levarone, and Gabby Millard.
