Event Details

The CVRep presents The Fantasticks: A Love Story Reimagined November 1–12, 2023. Book and Lyrics by Tom Jones. Music by Harvey Schmidt

CVRep will present the West Coast premiere of the re-imagined and re-gendered adaptation of the groundbreaking musical The Fantasticks. In the premiere of this new version, the original librettist and lyricist Tom Jones, has re-adapted this version but preserved the beloved score and storyline into which the two young, original lovers – Matt and Louisa have become – Matt and Lewis. Furthermore, these two are not being goaded into each other’s arms by their mischief-making, gardening fathers, but rather by their mothers! A night of music, magic and celebration of life is one that is not to be missed.

There will be two preview performances on Wednesday, November 1, 2023 at 2 pm & 7 pm.
