The Fantasticks2003

  • 3.9
Eight times a week, from 1960 to 2002, the Sullivan Street Playhouse in New York City’s Greenwich Village played midwife to a musical theater ritual that attracted theatergoers from across the globe. That show was the legendary and beloved "Fantasticks" and for 42 years and 17,162 performances, a legion of performers, including future luminaries such as F. Murray Abraham, Ricardo Montalban, Elliott Gould, Liza Minnelli, Glenn Close, Richard Chamberlain and John Carradine played out its sweetly timeless boy-meets-girl tale. On the eve of the final Off-Broadway performance, documentary filmmaker Eli Kabillio takes a wistful look back at the show’s genesis, its creators and, above all, its continued worldwide popularity.
