Step right up and enjoy the universally loved show that has entertained audiences for over 40 years! The Fantasticks is as fresh and dazzling as ever in this screen adaptation from the original creative team of Tom Jones and Harvey Schmidt. Director Michael Ritchie (A Simple Wish) orchestrates the musical talents of Oscar® winner Joel Grey (Cabaret), Tony Award winner Barnard Hughes (Da), Jean Louisa Kelly (Mr. Holland's Opus) and Joe McIntyre (New Kids On the Block) in a magical, mystical love story inspired by Romeo and Juliet. Two teenagers on neighboring farms steal glances and hide their romance from their feuding fathers. Little do these lovebirds know, however, that their fathers are actually good friends who've hatched a plan with the help of a mystical roving sideshow and its equally mysterious ringmaster to get these lovers down the aisle! But be careful what you wish for. Because to bring these families together they must first be torn apart!
