The Fantasticks: The World’s Longest Running Musical opens this weekend at 3Below in San Jose

Guggenheim Entertainment presents

The Fantasticks


Music and Lyrics by Tom Jones
Book by Harvey Schmidt

January 30 – February 23, 2020

“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.

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. 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.
