“Try To Remember” a time when The Fantasticks wasn’t enchanting audiences around the world. The longest-running musical in history, this beloved piece is a charming, funny, and romantic musical fable about a boy, a girl, their parents, and the wall that keeps them apart. Follow the star-struck lovers into a world of moonlight, magic, and memory as reality collides with romance and the young couple falls in love, grows apart, and finally finds their way back to each other after the September rain.
The Fantasticks: The World’s Longest Running Musical
At the heart of The Fantasticks’ breathtaking poetry and subtle theatrical sophistication is a purity and simplicity that transcends cultural barriers. The result is a timeless fable of love that manages to be nostalgic and universal at the same time, punctuated by a bountiful collection of the best in song. Celebrating the 60th anniversary of this romantic charmer, 3Below brings together a dynamic cast not to be missed.
The date is May 3, 1960, and at the Sullivan Street Playhouse in New York City, an excited crowd take their seats for the opening night of a new, Off-Broadway musical. They will be the first audience to enjoy the musical’s charming, boy-meets-girl story, but they won’t be the last The Fantasticks will continue to delight audiences for the next 60 years, and in the process become the world’s longest running musical.
“THE PERFECT MUSICAL. IT’S A GEM!” -THE WALL STREET JOURNAL
The famous score, which includes the classics Try To Remember, They Were You and Soon It’s Gonna Rain, is as timeless as the story itself.
“STILL THE BEST … AFTER ALL THESE YEARS!” -NEW YORK POST
Whether it is your first time seeing the show, or your 50th time (yes, some people have seen the show over 50 times!) the production here at 3Below will make it clear why The Fantasticks continues to be the world’s longest running musical.
