View Details

To protect our community, Near West Theatre's production of The Fantasticks has been postponed. For more information, read our 2021-2022 season update! Future updates will be shared as available.

Deep in December our hearts should remember, and follow

A boy, a girl, two parents, and a wall. The Fantasticks, known for its simplicity and intimate staging, is perfect for NWT’s first-ever black box production. Neighbors Luisa & Matt are determinedly in love but kept apart by a wall built by their seemingly discontented parents. Little do they know, “to manipulate children, you merely say ‘no.’” Featuring musical theatre repertoire classics like “Try To Remember” and “They Were You,” which transport us back in time yet toward the universal, timeless notions about the journey of love.

THE FANTASTICKS is presented through special arrangement with Music Theatre International (MTI). All authorized performance materials are also provided by MTI.
