Hey, I just started listening to "The Fantastiks" and am enjoying, but am unsure about the story completely. Could someone either give me a link to a site with musical synopsises or give me a brief summary?

I believe itis about two young people who fall in love but their parents want to keep them apart. I never saw it. Barbara Streisant sings some songs from it, that much I know.

Well, not exactly. Basically, two fathers pretend to feud so that their son and daughter will fall in love with eachother (Forbidden fruit, the show explains), so after the deed is done, they hire an acting troupe to stage a rape (NOT in a sexual sense, rather, in a taking-the-person-away sense) so that the son can save the daughter and so their "feud" can end.

In act two, however, things start falling apart for both families. And that's all I'm gonna say, 'cause I want to encourage people to see the show for themselves, ok?
You insult me, I ignore you. That's how the system works around here.
