Before inspiring what is considered the longest-running musical in the world, 19th-century playwright Edmond Rostand's Les Romanesques whiled away the time on the shelf of a Paris antique shop. After searching far and wide for a copy of the Frenchman's first play, Rostand fanatics Harvey Schmidt and Tom Jones found themselves in the same shop where Les Romanesques was slowly collecting dust. The resourceful duo decided to resurrect Rostand's story in their musical adaptation The Fantasticks—a cynical yet sweet tale about fathers pretending to feud in order to trick their children into falling in love.

Now past the half-century mark after Les Romanesques' revival, The Fantasticks continues to soothe eardrums with endearing ballads, including "Try to Remember" and the classic duet "Soon It's Gonna Rain," backed by the soft twinkling of a piano and cascading strings. Pop singer and former teen heartthrob Aaron Carter steps into the role of Matt, who becomes smitten with his neighbor Luisa after their parents bar the two from courtship. Armed with Broadway-ready vocals, Carter, who told CBS' Celebrity Circuit he's been training with vocal coaches each day, belts through the musical's many highs and lows as the leading characters reassess their attraction after discovering they’ve been manipulated through fake kidnappings, unnecessary partitions, and industrial-size magnets hidden in their book bags.

Had such an amazing time watching The Perfect Crime at this theater! Everyone there was very friendly and the theater itself was a great size and it felt very intimate! I called a day in advance to reserve our seats and therefore when we arrived, we just showed our vouchers and were handed our tickets! They have a bar there with snacks and drinks that you can enjoy . Would definitely go again!

I came in with little expectations and came out enjoying the play. As an avid Broadway junkie, I've seen a plethora of on and off Broadway plays. I always meant to see one of the longest off Broadway plays and finally did and it kept my attention. I kept trying to figure out "whodunnit" and happy to say I was pretty close but it's not as cut and dry as I thought. I see why it's one of the longest off Broadway plays. For the price, you can't beat this play. Are you a good detective are you? Find out!
