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.
