Talk about a time-proven audience-pleaser! "Try to Remember" a time when this charming, romantic musical wasn't enchanting audiences around the world. THE FANTASTICKS is the world’s longest-running production of any kind, 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 is a moving tale of young lovers who become disillusioned, only to discover a more mature, meaningful love. Punctuated by a bountiful series of catchy, memorable songs such as “Try to Remember” and “Soon It’s Gonna Rain”, audiences will find themselves humming along whether they are revisiting the show or discovering it for the first time.
This video features footage and cast from the highly-acclaimed steampunk production of "The Fantasticks" which ran at the Omaha Playhouse February-March 2012. For the upcoming spring 2014 tour, the show is being redesigned and retro-fitted for proscenium stages.
