“Try to remember” a time when this charming spectacle did not enchant audiences all over the world. The 1960 musical is a funny, romantic musical that tells a fable about a boy, a girl, and their two parents trying to keep them apart. The musical’s off-Broadway production spanned 42 years with more than 17,000 performances. This makes The Fantasticks the oldest musical in the world.
Preceding The Fantasticks in Concert, the 2021 “Rep Outdoors” series featured two unique and immersive outdoor theatrical experiences. Marie & Rosetta was a musical piece celebrating the life and music of Sister Rosetta Tharpe of Arkansas, performed on the grounds of War Memorial Park. Primating was the world premiere of a “wild” romantic comedy, performed inside the Little Rock Zoo. The Fantasticks in Concert will conclude the 2021 “Rep Outdoors” series and mark the return from theater to theater after 15 months of in-person activity due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
