The Fantasticks… our first-ever MainStage musical!
The Fantasticks is the world's longest-running musical and with good reason: at the heart of its breathtaking poetry and subtle theatrical sophistication is a purity and simplicity that transcends cultural barriers. It’s a funny and romantic tale, a timeless fable of love that is both nostalgic and universal. A boy and a girl fall in love and grow apart. They learn that “without a hurt, the heart is hollow,” and with this truth they find their way back to each other.
Many of The Fantasticks’ catchy songs have become classics, including Try to Remember, They Were You, and Soon it's Gonna Rain. The original production ran for 17,162 performances and 42 years (until 2002), making it the world’s longest-running musical. It won a Tony award for Excellence in Theatre.

A Midsummer Night’s Dream.
Shakespeare’s most beloved comedy captivates in a magical tale of two pairs of young lovers lost in the forest, a hopeless troupe of actors, the king and queen of the woodland fairies, and the mischievous sprite Puck, who sprinkles romance and uproarious, free-for-all havoc over everyone.
A firm family favourite, the most performed and popular of all Shakespeare’s plays, will feature a soundtrack from Emmy award-winning sound designer Rob Bertola.
