The off-Broadway production of the musical 'The Fantasticks' has become a legend in the American theatre. The show opened on 3rd May, 1960 and is still running! The original investment of $16,500 that producer Lore Noto raised to stage musical has been paid and repaid many thousand fold. And companies both professional and amateur keep the show alive in many languages all over the world. Tom Jones and Harry Schmidt met at the University of Texas, where they wrote undergraduate shows as a team. This gentle, whimsical production was their first full show together and their biggest hit. Try to Remember is its haunting opening and closing song.
