The Fantasticks

It’s the world’s longest-running musical, and the plot seems appropriately timeless: though a deep-seated hatred keeps two neighbors feuding, their children Matt and Luisa have fallen deeply in love. But predictability goes out the window from the opening number, “Try to Remember,” an ode to tenderness lost sung by the mysterious rapscallion El Gallo. The men have hired the wily liar to kidnap Luisa, thus setting up Matt to be the hero by rescuing her. And the fathers’ feud was a ruse as well, dreamt up to get their offspring to begin a seemingly forbidden romance. But their well-intended machinations—along with the less scrupulous motives of El Gallo—add up to a heartbreaking, yet gently comic, tale that explores themes of love, loss, and growing up.

Rialto Square Theatre

Designed to mimic the French palace of Versailles, Rialto Square Theatre's magnificent interior awes showgoers with its gilded opulence. In the regal inner lobby, a 20-foot, 250-light chandelier—dubbed The Duchess—illuminates a circular series of delicate reliefs that depict allegories of man triumphing through labor and scenes from Greek mythology. A scaled-down replica of Paris's Arc de Triomphe leads from the lobby to the rotunda, adding to the space's grandeur and commemorating miniature Napoleon's victory at the adorable Battle of miniature Austerlitz.
