DRAMATURG’S NOTES “Yes, that’s it. That’s what we wanted: to celebrate romanticism and mock it at the same time. To touch people, and then to make them laugh at the very thing that touched them. To make people laugh, and then to turn the laugh around, find the other side of it. To put two emotions side by side, as close together as possible, like a chord in music.” ~ Tom Jones, Author In The Fantasticks, we find ourselves with a doe-eyed boy and girl guided into romance by their well-intentioned fathers lending not so gentle hands. The rose colored glasses of love are then taken away by a devious abductor who shows our pair the world beyond their own backyards. The age old story of what young people learn on their journey away from innocence and towards reality is what has kept this musical relevant to our audiences and at the forefront of their hearts since its premiere in 1960. Familiar and charming as it may be, this musical surely still bears weight. In setting and style, The Fantasticks is light on its feet, dreamy, and idealistic, but by drawing back into a 1950’s perspective, this production works to capitalize on a very specific time in America where all was possible and change, inevitable. Looking past the aesthetics, however, the real marvel is our opportunity to watch a young couple grow away from a childish fantasy and towards reality, as shocking as it can sometimes be: “It’s about ‘happy endings.’ Our dreams, wants, desires for true romance and love, and the realities of what that means. El Gallo’s speech in Act 2 sums it up best, I think: Who understands why Spring is born Out of Winter’s laboring pain?
 Or why we must all die a bit Before we grow again.” - Danny Gurwin, Director Can happy endings exist without the rose colored glasses? Surely, the naïve notion of a fairytale does not account for true happiness, but when burdened with the world, how is it found? Maybe, it was right next-door the whole time.

- Amber Justmann, Dramaturg
