There's always time to remember this funny and romantic tale about a boy, a girl, their two fathers and a love that grows with each season. At the heart of this breathtaking show lies poetry and subtle theatrical sophistication with purity and simplicity. The Fantasticks is a timeless tale -- full of magic and moonlight -- of a young boy and girl who fall madly in love, but soon grow restless and disillusioned. Matt, played by Jordan Duvall, and Luisa, played by Jillian Caillouette, are in love and find their relationship challenged by their intruding fathers, played by Russell Fish and George Lombardo, and a bandit narrator known as El Gallo played by Jon Escobar. Two corky theatrical actors Henry and Mortimer, played by Dave Wall and James J Moran, and a Mute, Sue Emond, complete the cast of characters. This tender coming-of-age story with beautiful music and a dose of nostalgia is a guaranteed treat for parents and children alike.
