The Fantasticks is a 1960 musical comedy with music by Harvey Schmidt and lyrics by Tom Jones. It is loosely based on a story called "The Romancers" ("Les Romanesques") by Edmond Rostand. The play was conceived as a school project for a class at Columbia University in 1959. It premiered in the Sullivan Street Playhouse, a small New York City off-Broadway theater, on May 3, 1960, with Jerry Orbach in the role of the narrator. It closed on January 13, 2002, after 17,162 performances. It is the world's longest-running musical, and the longest-running show of any kind in the United States. On August 23, 2006, a revival of The Fantasticks opened at the off-Broadway Snapple Theater Center in New York City. The revival is directed by Tom Jones, who wrote the show's lyrics and who also appears in the role of "The Old Actor" under the stage name Thomas Bruce. The revival is produced by Steven Baruch, Marc Routh, Richard Frankel and Thomas Viertel.
