Pleasanton Playhouse Studio Theater - The Fantasticks
A time-proven audience-pleaser! "Try To Remember" a time when this romantic charmer wasn't enchanting audiences at New York's Sullivan Street Playhouse. THE FANTASTICKS is the longest-running musical in the world, and with good reason: at the heart of its 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. It's moving tale of young lovers who become disillusioned, only to discover a more mature, meaningful love is punctuated by a bountiful series of catchy, memorable songs, many of which have become standards.
