The Fantasticks will run from April 24-May 10 (weekends only). Scroll down for a sneak peek at the cast!

The Fantasticks is a funny and heartfelt musical about a boy, a girl, their two fathers, and the wall that separates their two houses. The boy and the girl fall in love, face the challenges of the harsh world, and finally find their way back to each other after realizing the truth in the narrator, El Gallo's, words, "without a hurt, the heart is hollow." The gorgeous setting of The Marriott Pavilion at The Culinary Institute of America is a perfect backdrop for sharing this timeless, romantic musical.

The Fantasticks has been produced in every state in America and more than 60 countries worldwide.
