about

Frequently called the Miracle on Sullivan Street (in New York''s Greenwich Village) ÊThe FantasticksÊ has been the most-often performed musical around the world setting more national and international longevity records than any musical in theater history. With the advent of the show''s New York closing Donald C. Farber and Robert Viagras have completely updated the 1991 edition of their best-selling book. ÊThe Amazing StoryÊ is the detailed history of how this fabulously successful show by Tom Jones and Harvey Schmidt came into being and how and why it succeeded. In tracing the evolution of the show from an idea to a cultural phenomenon the book takes readers through the countless auditions to attract backers the search for theaters to hold tryouts (which indicated disaster) and eventual popular success. Among the actors who have performed in the musical are Anna Maria Alberghetti Richard Chamberlain Elliott Gould Bert Lahr Liza Minnelli Robert Goulet and Glenn Close. This updated edition includes new photos of the show''s many productions and stars recent interviews with performers writers and others associated with the musical and suprising revelations that could not be told until the show''s closing on Off Broadway.
