I saw this play many times while I was growing up in Greenwich Village. Its a wonderful trip down Memory Lane to see it again as an adult, with my daughter. Its still kind of magical....

Sunday, September 18, 2011

A magical night!

It was a magical night for me indeed! Not only did I get to see one of the best and most lovely musicals I've ever seen, it was also magical because in fact I was a few bucks short and this most wonderful lady just gave me $5 so I get to see "The Fantastiks"! I didn't get your name, but I will pass the good deed for sure. Thank you soooo much so I get to enjoy this magical night =D

Tuesday, September 13, 2011

great show & excellent performance. I cant believe it's taken so long to see this show- even though I'm familiar w/a lot of the music (from early Barbra Streisand albums), but the story is fun and original . good voices , and a good time was had.

might be frothing

On my way into the theater. Literally frothing with excitement. FROTHING.

Saturday, September 10, 2011

This show was so amazing. I loved the comedy and the songs were incredible. Overall, it was a great show and I would recommend it to a friend.

Sunday, August 21, 2011


I've seen the first part of the show, and it is awesome! I'm so glad that my parents took me to see it. My favorite part was when the magician threw the streamers into the audience. One landed right on my shoulder, and another on my head!
we like everything! it's hilarious.!

Macintrye Dixon was absolutely fantastic! I loved his performance, he played it brilliantly. That kind of acting is why I love the theatre!

Sunday, July 10, 2011

Simply Magical!

In this age of bigger effects and smaller story, it's such a revelation to remember that great theatre is truly made of a great story and "fantastick" actors. This was one of the purist moments of theatre I've seen in years.

Saturday, July 2, 2011

Hello - This is a great, great show. I first saw it in 1971, and had the pleasure of seeing it many times before it closed at the Sullivan Street Playhouse. I was delighted to learn that it is still a
part of New York City, and I'm honored to have enjoyed it once again. It has a timeless theme, and I hope it will be here for future generations.

Friday, April 15, 2011


This play is quite funny and filled with energy, once it gets going. The cast is excellent and the dialogue witty and charming. The "minor characters" almost steal the show! I would highly recommend this play to anyone, even whole families. -Frank Cecchin MD

We came to NYC from Massachusetts to see "The Merchant of Venice" and "Rain." We got to see Al Pacino, but we weren't able to get tickets for "Rain." We instead purchased tickets for "The Fantasticks" and after seeing the show, we're now glad about the way things turned out! It was an adorable show with amazing actors. The show was funny, sweet, romantic and classic. Next time, "Rain," but for now, we're very pleased with the turn of events.

SHARE-ing Broadway

We are with a group of 18 high school aged foreign exchange students from an organization called SHARE ERDT. What an amazing NYC experience!

Monday, January 17, 2011

I'm happy to say that this show is as delightful now, in 2011, as it was when I was the musical director for it in college at DePaul University in 1970. Words have been changed to make it more politically correct, but the sweetness of the show reigns....and this after only the first act.

Mary Ellen Kanies Beckmann

So excited to see The Fantasticks for the first time!

We are so excited to see this history-making show for the first time. So many incredible stories surround this show. We can't wait!

Huge snowstorm today, but glad we made it to the city to see "The Fantasticks"

Friday, December 17, 2010


Still fresh after all these years! The cast was wonderful and the music as beautiful as I remember. The only thing I was confused by was how quiet the audience was..? Didn't they realize how great this show was??

Tuesday, December 14, 2010

December 14, 2010

It is currently intermission, as i stand here, typing, eating m&ms, and thinking of how utterly ageless Fantasticks is. it could be set in any year, any place, any situation. and yet its themes run true. i believe it has now been 15 minutes.

Sunday, December 12, 2010


Quite a "fantastick" show. A comment I heard from a fellow patron. It was hilarous! Though not quite the setting I was expecting for a New York theatre. -The Johnson family from Virginia. First time in New York.

I am loving the show, although my husband is falling asleep. Please don't judge him, he falls asleep in ALL musicals.

I played Luisa in this show almost 25 years ago, after graduating from the american Academy of Dramatic Arts. it was my first paying gig, so I have a special place in my heart for this show.

Friday, February 12, 2010

The bandit lived up to the part, but they shouldn't have changed the words to "It Depends on What You Pay." That was very disappointing... the only disappointing thing about the performance.

Matt as Matt!



I am most happy to be here seeing him as a superstar on broadway, and am ever his friend,

Wowza! I am so impressed! We finished the first act, and i, forgetting there was an intermission, began to mourn the loss of the end of a show, and then you reminded me and i experienced a second wave of delight! This is wonderful! I cant wait to go back to NC and brag to my theatre friends about this! Fantastik cast, pun intended!

Thank You

Excellent Fantasticks

I hadn't heard too much about The Fantasticks before seeing it, except that Jerry Orbach was in the original cast. I must say that I loved the production that I saw. The entire cast was wonderful, especially Steve Routman, Michael Nostrand, Gene Jones, and John Thomas Waite. Jordan Nichols is quite talented, too.

The Fantasticks are Fantastic!

My best friend Rebecca works here at the Snapple Theater and I have seen the play once but I really loved it! The actors are phenomenal and fantastick, of course. The cast is just amazing and they work wonderfully together on and off the stage. I have seen many Broadway plays, such as Wicked and Hairspray, and I found the Snapple Theater thee most comfortable and wonderful theater I have been in. Everyone who works here is very nice and friendly and so enthusiastic about their jobs which makes this theater the number one stop for anyone coming in the city are wanting to watch an amazing play.

Friday, August 29, 2008

The Fantasticks on Facebook!

I was on my facebook last night, and I saw an update for The Fantasticks! It said, "The amazing vocals of Nick Spangler, on America's longest running musical, The Fantasticks!" I was so happy that many people know about this play! Its wonderful and everybody in the cast are the best singers/actors a musical can ask for!

the good news about the fantastics

Dear Blog, A lady near us was laughing so hard we thought she would fall out of her seat. The fantastics is a funny show and I think they should do the show for a lot of years.

Simple beauty. But if you're coming to the Snapple, bring a sweater, they keep it v. cold!


I saw this 35 years ago and it is just as relevant and meaningful. The simplicity of the play takes you in the realm of excellent theater.

Sunday, July 27, 2008

Fantastic, didn't know wthat to expect, but was glad for the gamble
thanks to the box office guy for trading my wednesday tickets for tonight! i promise to double check the dates i buy tickets for in the future, hahaha.

Wonderful story, beautiful acting, glorious music. I am sop happy the musical is back.

The Fantasticks is Fantastick

Wednesday, July 16, 2008

I started working in the Snapple theater about a month ago. Since I never actually saw the Fantastiks for the first 2 weeks, I started to get very curious to see what it was about. When I saw the whole thing for the first time, I cryed! I love the Fantastiks and all of the actors. Them just being on stage, has taught me so much. I see them everyday and respect how much effort they put into every show! I LOVE THE FANTASTIKS!!!

Sunday, July 13, 2008

great show!!

i liked it a lot!!!best show ever!

Welcome back!

So glad to see the show has returned!

Sunday, June 22, 2008

Simple but elegant

one of the best shows I have ever seen. Go see it today. It is perfect for kids also.

A Visit From...Kristin Chenoweth

I have many memories of playing Luisa. Singing the songs, acting the first monologue and performing with the cast. Even when the air conditioner broke down at the theater on Sullivan Street, or I slipped and fell on my first entrance, The Fantasticks brought me some of the best times I ever had on stage.

During a particularly hot summer, one July 4th, with no air conditioning... 2 people came to the show. In the opening number, "Try to Remember," we were supposed to scan the audience. I remember not knowing where to look, because there were only 2 people! So, I just bobbed my head back and forth between the two of them!

We had so many good laughs and I remember it being one of the best times of my career.

- Kristin Chenoweth
Tony Award-winning star of The Fantasticks, Wicked, You’re A Good Man Charlie Brown and TV’s Pushing Daisies

Nick Spangler

What a wonderful Matt. handsome, boyish, charming, great voice
I want to wish The Fantasticks well, they are a great show that deserves a long run


I never thought the show would be as good as it was. With a name like the Snapple Theater I figured they would have "added" to the show with exorbitant sets. Not true! This is like watching the original production (I would imagine, I am only 18 and did not see the original but have the CD and this sounds very similar.) Wow I was floored. Jeremey Wright's Review
I have seen the show 2 times before, once in the Greenwich Village where it was in the 70's and once in a theater in Fort Lauderdale. The one in the Village was one of my favorite shows ever (up there with Godspell) and the one in Florida was not bad but not as good as the original. This one is just like the original, maybe even better, it seemed fresh and full of vigor. The cast is very talented. Good luck to the show I hope the critics like it.


There are not a lot of differences between the original 1960 Sullivan Street production and this one. Any changes are subtle and actually work to strengthen things. The beautiful score is intact, with its simple piano and harp. The voices are pure and clear, not microphoned as it was intended to be. Still lots of paper confetti, and lots of emotion.


The best off broadway production currently on the boards.
brilliant brilliant brilliant brilliant brilliant!!!!!!!!!!
I just saw Wicked down the street and now I am seeinf this my momsays they are going to be very different we'll see
I just saw Wicked down the street and now I am seeinf this my momsays they are going to be very different we'll see
My school did this play last year I like it a lot I want to play Luisa so I can sing

Saw the show last night. The cast is absolutely terrific. Erica Piccininni is quite the standout and may be the best Luisa in the long history of this show.

Nick Sprangler,

I just saw the Fantasticks on June 21st for my birthday. There couldn't have been a better present. You were perfect in every line and every scene. :)your amazing & you are a true inspiration to me. Thanks for being so FANTASTICK!

All these songs in one show? How can it be bad?

Must See

A must see for any fan of musical theater, or for anyone who wants to enjoy a simple, funny and wonderful tale of youth romance (with a dash of comedy and a pinch of danger thrown in!) Timeless!!!


mesmerizing show.....Dennis Parlato as the narrator is superb
The sound is a little weird at times hard to hear Luisa but I thhink it's because I am used to being in big Broadway theaters with big orchestras
keep it up Fantasticks


Best Matt and Luisa I have ever seen, and I've seen the show roughly 10 times. Go see The Fantasticks.
Well done, much like the original. The score is intact and lush
I love this show so much I just had to say that.
First show I saw in New york........1963........Big year.....Lots of memories.......Fantasticks brought me a lot of comfort and still does today...........Stella

Good luck to Tom jones and The Fantasticks!!

Nick Spangler is a God in man's clothing, he can sing the phone book and I would buy a ticket

Nancy from Manhattan

The best thing about The Fantasticks is the fact that I can bring my children--who range in age from 5 to 8 to 14--and each of them will find an aspect of the show to cling to and understand. For my oldest daughter it's the young love between Luisa and Matt. For my youngest boy it's the action and adventure plus the physical comedy provided by the Old Actor. And for my middle daughter who loves the theater, it's just about everything. As a single parent in NYC sometimes it's hard to find quality family experiences like the Fantasticks. I'm glad this production came back.

The Fantasticks

It's fantastic, it's the fantastics!! it's breath taking phenomenal!! exiting !! amazing!! action packed yet romantic.

to wrap it up... everyone should go uin see it


I hope they have touched nothing and kept the entire original production intact. The Fantasticks is a fabulous melodic show, they don't make 'em like this anymore.


I have the C.D. of the revival and I was surprised at how much it resembles the original C.D. Some songs sound exactly the same. I have seen some of this cast in other plays in New York and it looks like it is a good cast. I am excited to see The Fantasticks again.
Looking forward to the show. Came from Chicago to see Rent, August Osage and Fantasticks.

Thursday, June 19, 2008


Maybe I am biased because I have a firend in the show but I think it is an amazing treat to have The fantasticks back in new York, I mean after all where can you find a show that is truly just about the lyrics and storyline and simple music instead of pyrotechnics and big sets and loud orchestras? This is theater in its truest form and I applaud the snapple theater center for putting on the fantasticks.
Matt and Luisa are very strong, they help the show flow smoothly. Dennis parlato is a scary el gallo especially in the "rape" scene which is no longer a rape scene. The acoustics are ehhhh you couldn't hear luisa sometimes. overall a nice production.
Not my favorite musical but its watchable
Bravo to all involved, a beautiful production that captures the magic of the original

When I started planning my holiday to New York, five years in the making, one of the very first things I decided that I wanted to do was see a musical on Broadway. What could be a better musical than the longest running one of all time, with its wonderful music and sublime cocktail of poetry and hilarity? I love it!

I saw the orignial

and I hope this one is just like it
Excited to see the show.

---Mary from Waukegan

Thomas Bruce

I was under the impression Thomas bruce was in this but oh well at least "he" directed it!
i agree with what my what my brother said even though i dont like plays i like action movies but this play is good.
I saw this when anthony fedorov was in it and now I am seeing it again because we are visiting New York. i like the Fantasticks because it is timeless and a lot of people know it plus we did it in my high school. good luck to the cast.

A Visit From...Kathryn Crosby

The last time I saw The Fantasticks, I cried the entire time because of the beauty of the production. This time I sat back and enjoyed just everything. What impressed me this time was the words. The language is so beautiful. This production will run for 100 years. No, it will run forever.

- Kathryn Crosby
Broadway's State Fair, Bing Crosby On Broadway

Innovative and endearing...a nice romantic and comical left a nice smily in my head...a brilliant performance by the cast and the scores are preety and original..

--The Commander

Yates and Raychell said...

This show is an endearing, entertaining and gripping commical story, with a wonderful plot, sensational music and incredibly talented actors.
Condratulations on a HUGE hit!

The theater is set up just like the sullivan street playhouse and you feel like you are actually watching the original production. Dennis Parlato brings back memories of Jerry Orbach.


I thought the cast gave good performances overall. The fathers are very funny. The old actor I wish it was Thomas bruce aka Tom Jones but otherwise I liked the show.
The Fnatastics is fantastic
I am excited to see an Off Broadway show
It's interesting that this show is playing in Times Square when you consider how no frills it is. I hope they did not "Spruce It Up"

Try to remember

Try to remember the kind of September when grass was green and grain so yellow

What a lyric

From an Old-Timer

I have seen The Fantasticks over 35 times and each time find something new, something I've never seen, heard or felt before. I am sure this production will be as beautiful as all the others. The Fantasticks has a special place in my heart.

WickedFan Says...

We were just in NYC and so excited to see that The Fantasticks is back! We just got home and already made plans to come back to NYC on July 24th thru the 26th just to see the show, and we're bringing friends. We're also planning to bring a December tour group! Thank you thank you for your theater!

I can't believe the Fantasticks is back!


Hi, and welcome to a theatrical first. Have you ever watched a play or musical and before it's even over wanted to rush out and tell all your friends about it? Well, the producers of The Fantasticks are offering you the chance to post your thoughts and comments about the show--live, direct from the theater--on this blog, where they will be immediately viewable by anyone at a computer screen. Simply type away and begin to engage with live theater in a totally new, interactive way. We'll be checking in from time to time, as will members of the cast and some celebrity guests. We think it's a pretty cool idea, and hope you'll find it fun. We are so thrilled to have The Fantasticks back in New York. Enjoy the show...and happy blogging!
