The off-Broadway production of the musical 'The Fantasticks' has become a legend in the American theatre. The show opened on 3rd May, 1960 — and is still running! The original investment of $16,500 that producer Lore Noto raised to stage musical has been paid and repaid many thousand fold. And companies — both professional and amateur — keep the show alive in many languages all over the world. Tom Jones and Harry Schmidt met at the University of Texas, where they wrote undergraduate shows as a team. This gentle, whimsical production was their first full show together and their biggest hit. Try to Remember is its haunting opening and closing song.
