Will & Grace Star Eric McCormack Will Star In Concert Version Of THE FANTASTICKS in Stratford

Eric McCormack, one of Stratford's most successful alumni, is returning to the Festival in October, to perform the lead role in a concert version of the world's longest-running musical, The Fantasticks.

Mr. McCormack, who last year received the Stratford Festival Legacy Award, will take a break from taping his Emmy Award-winning television series, Will & Grace, to appear as El Gallo in The Fantasticks in Concert. This heartwarming story of a young couple, their bickering parents, a pair of veteran thespians and the dashing narrator who makes everything end happily has been a hit around the globe since its première in 1960, with unforgettable songs like "Try to Remember" and "Soon It's Gonna Rain." Certain language and situations have been changed to reflect the evolving social awareness and attitudes of a 21st-century audience.

Running one day only - Tuesday, October 30, at 8 p.m. - the show will be performed in concert at the Avon Theatre by Mr. McCormack and members of the Festival company, directed by Richard Ouzounian (who directed Mr. McCormack as Demetrius in A Midsummer Night's Dream in 1989), with musical supervision by Franklin Brasz, the Festival's Director of Music.
