The Fantasticks – Iowa State University Theatre

music by Harvey Schmidt, book and lyrics by Tom Jones

The Fantasticks tells an age-old tale. Its ingredients are simple: a boy, a girl two mothers, and a wall. It’s scenery, a tattered cardboard moon, hovers over an empty wooden platform. With these bare essentials a theatrical phenomenon unmatched the world over was launched.
