The Arena Stage and Director Amanda Dehnert are presenting an innovative re-imagining of The Fantasticks, the Off-Broadway play that earned the title of the world’s longest running musical. This is a story about a boy and a girl who defy their father’s feuding to fall in love during the magical moonlit nights, but who must then face the harsh realities of the sunlit world. The Fantasticks is playing at the Lincoln Theatre through January 10.
