With 17,162 Off Broadway performances before closing in 2002, Tom Jones and Harvey Schmidt’s The Fantasticks set the record for the world’s longest-running musical. So what makes this comic love story so popular? It could be the musical numbers, such as “Try to Remember” and “Soon It’s Gonna Rain.” It could be the relatable themes of young love and meddling fathers, or the handsome and suave narrator, El Gallo. Thanks to an ArtisTree Music Theatre Festival professional production, Vermont theatergoers can get swept away by this story of a boy and a girl who fall in love, part ways and reunite for a more meaningful relationship.

Price: $18-35.
