They return to each other and the love they had, having learned from the world.

BWW Reviews: Circuit Playhouse Remembers THE FANTASTICKSBWW Reviews: Circuit Playhouse Remembers THE FANTASTICKS
by Joseph Baker - Oct 13, 2014

Just a few weeks ago I was dodging a falling chandelier at the Orpheum's staging of PHANTOM OF THE OPERA; at the 'Phantom Event' held prior to the play, I was reminded of all the physical (as well as fiscal) requirements for properly staging this production. I kept thinking, 'How many small, financially strapped towns would breathe a sigh of relief if the proceeds from such a production were to come their way?' Well, that's one extreme of theatre. Tonight I was exposed to the opposite; Circuit Playhouse's production of Harvey Schmidt and Tom Jones' allegorical The Fantasticks reminded me of Thornton Wilder's minimalism in the staging of OUR TOWN. If musicals like PHANTOM and LES MISERABLES are the 'central air' of theatre, The Fantasticks is rather like a quaint little oscillating fan. Yet, its breeze can be refreshing. (more...)
