Published on Mon, January 24, 2011

Marywood University's Department of Music, Theatre, and Dance present The Fantasticks, (Book and Lyrics by Tom Jones and Music by Harvey Schmidt) from February 9-12 at 7:30 p. m. in the Sette LaVerghetta Center for Performing Arts.

This is a delightful musical concerning two neighbors who trick their children into falling in love by erecting a wall between their houses and staging a mock abduction, so that Matt can heroically save Louisa. The show's original off-Broadway production ran a total of 42 years and 17,162 performances, making it the world's longest-running musical. The poetic book and breezy, inventive score, includes such familiar songs such as "Try to Remember" and "Soon It's Gonna Rain." The Fantasticks has become a staple of regional, community, and high school productions virtually since its premiere, with approximately 250 new productions each year. The musical has played throughout the U.S. and in at least 67 foreign countries.
