Try To Remember when a musical made you feel so good!
The Fantasticks tells of a young boy and girl falling in love, but then yearning for the adventures the world has to offer, fathers scheming about their children, but then feuding with each other, and a man of mystery, El Gallo, who both brings romance to the girl, but then steals what she values. The show played on Broadway for over 17,000 performances between 1960 and 2002 and contains many fun and hum-able songs, such as Plant a Radish, Soon It's Gonna Rain, and the classic, Try To Remember.
"The show sparkles with energy" - Erin from St. Paul
