The Fantasticks The Short List (Theater) Closing (Theater and Galleries)

When: Thursdays-Sundays. Continues through March 8 2020

Tom Jones and Harvey Schmidt's beloved musical, whose original off-Broadway production ran for 42 years (and originally starred the late Jerry Orbach), gets a revival at Citadel under Pat Murphy's direction, with musical direction by Aaron Kaplan and choreography by Jake Ganzer. Two fathers who live next door to each other have kept their kids apart precisely because they know that will make the young ones fall in love. They cook up a scheme involving kidnapping in order to heighten the drama for the incipient romance. The show famously introduced "Try to Remember" to the musical theater canon.

Price: Previews 2/5-2/6, $20; regular run 2/7-3/8, $40 Thu-Fri, $45 Sat-Sun
