The Fantasticks

The Fantasticks
Book and Lyrics by Tom Jones
Music by Harvey Schmidt
Directed by Barry Hooper
21 – 26 October 1996

The Fantasticks tells an age-old tale. Its ingredients are simple: a boy, a girl, two fathers, and a wall. Its scenery, a tattered cardboard moon, hovers over an empty wooden platform. With these bare essentials, Jones and Schmdt launched a theatrical phenomenon.
