Playing at the intimate Jerry Orbach Theater inside the Snapple Theater Center, The Fantasticks appeals to theatergoers of all ages with a delightful, humorous spin on the classic tale of Romeo & Juliet.
The familiar score soothes 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 belts through the musical's many highs and lows as the leading characters reassess their love and reunite after discovering they’ve been manipulated through fake kidnappings, unnecessary partitions, and industrial-size magnets hidden in their bookbags.
