The Fantasticks Critics' Reviews

"Highlighting [The Fantasticks] is the aural pleasure of hearing Schmidt's music from strong, unamplified voices, accompanied by piano and embellished only by the delicious sound of that harp."

Review by Steven Suskin from Variety

"From 'Try to Remember,' the show's best known tune, to 'Soon It's Gonna Rain' to the haunting 'They Were You,' the songs are reminders of what makes this little musical so hypnotic."

Review by Michael Kuchwara from Associated Press

"It is refreshing to find, on the edge of the Times Square theater district, a musical that uses no artificial amplification and no special effects that exceed the complexity of a cardboard moon."

Review by Ben Brantley from The New York Times
