The Fantasticks - Tom  Jones, Harvey Schmidt, Jones Schmidt I liked it much more that Spitfire Grill, but I wasn’t crazy about it. The songs were catchy and much more traditional/musical-like. I agree with Patrick that it might be hard to cast given that SVP tends to get more female auditioners; and the female also needs to be a very strong singer. I loved the parental comments (Plant a Radish and Never Say No are fabulous), but I wasn’t so sure that the love story felt real. Rather than take the lesson that things are more meaningful when we’ve suffered a loss, the punchy tone just comes across as beligerent. Of course, that could be just because I am reading rather than seeing it.
