About the show

The Fantasticks lays claim to being the World’s Longest Running Musical.  Indeed, the show ran continuously at the Sullivan Street Playhouse off-Broadway for 17,162 performances from 1960 to 2002.  CCP Director Rich Phipps saw it there in 1990 and was taken by the simple beauty of the show, and the intimacy of the venue, as it was only five rows deep.  By the early 2000s, The Fantasticks had become established as perhaps the most performed musical in the world, having been adapted to film, and produced around the globe in 67 countries by professional, community, and school theatres.  The Fantasticks is a funny and romantic musical about a boy, a girl, and their two fathers who try to keep them apart. The narrator, El Gallo, asks the audience to use their imagination and follow him into a world of moonlight and magic.
