Head across the bridge for a musically memorable night as this summer’s theatre season kicks off with performances of the musical about young love, The Fantasticks.

What began as a crowd pleaser turned into the longest-running musical of all time, with 17, 162 performances and a remarkable 42-year-old run in New York. Thus earning its title as “The World’s Longest Running Musical” in the Guinness Book of World Records.
