The Fantasticks

Presented by Virginia Samford Theatre at Virginia Samford Theatre

Whimsical, poignant, and romantic, The Fantasticks focuses on two young lovers, their meddling fathers, and the journey we all must take through adolescence to discover how to truly love. The enigmatic narrator, El Gallo, introduces us to Matt and Luisa, who experience the magical, moonlit phase of falling in love. However, El Gallo leads them from the romantic moonlight into the harsh sunshine, where the weaknesses in their relationship are exposed and the reality of the struggles and heartache love brings is revealed. With the understanding that “without a hurt the heart is hollow,” Matt and Luisa manage to find their own identities, and in turn, to discover their strengths as a couple in times of both darkness and light. With the record for the longest American theatrical run, The Fantasticks is a gem of the American musical theatre, beloved and as timely as it was when it opened over 50 years ago.
