Madison Lyric Stage
Harvey Schmidt & Tom Jones
“Try to Remember” a time when this romantic charmer
by Tom Jones and Harvey Schmidt wasn’t enchanting audiences.
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 barriers.
The result is a timeless fable of love about a boy, a girl, and the two parents who try to keep them apart. Its much-loved songs include Try to Remember, Soon It’s Gonna Rain, Much More, and They Were You.
