The Fantasticks, by Tom Jones & Harvey Schmidt, is the world's longest running musical- running for over 52 years in Manhattan and entrancing generations of audiences the world over.

The Fantasticks is a funny and romantic musical about a boy, a girl, two fathers and a wall. The narrator, El Gallo, originally played by Jerry Orbach, 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 famous score, which includes the classics Try To Remember, They Were You and Soon It's Gonna Rain, is as timeless as the story itself.

InDepth InterView: Aaron Carter & THE FANTASTICKSInDepth InterView: Aaron Carter & THE FANTASTICKS
by Pat Cerasaro - February 19, 2012

Having previously appeared on Broadway in SEUSSICAL: THE MUSICAL as a teen, and, now, Off-Broadway, in the revival production of the timeless musical The Fantasticks, actor and pop star Aaron Carter has fit a lot of experience into his less-than-quarter-century-long life. Besides his stage roles, Carter has amassed a more than merely respectable resume, having had three chart-topping albums, numerous soundtrack featured spots and even headlining his own feature films. In this career-spanning conversation, Carter and I take a look back at his tween pop superstar heyday - with a look at his contributions to soundtracks like THE PRINCESS DIARIES - as well as his recent stint on ABC's DANCING WITH THE STARS. Also, his impressions of leading a musical as vaunted and revered as Tom Jones and Harvey Schmidt's The Fantasticks and the importance he places on a theatre appearances. Additionally, Carter also opens up about his desire to expand his horizons and diversify even further in his future, as well as shines a light on the rehearsal process taking on the lead role in The Fantasticks and what it was like working with original show creator, Tom Jones, in preparing for the role. All of that and much, much more! (more...)
