But if you miss a joke, don’t worry, another will be along in seconds.

Tom Jones and Harvey Schmidt's The Fantasticks is the longest running musical in the history of New York theatre.

The musical opened Off-Broadway in 1960 and ran for 42 years and over 17,000 performances. So beloved is the show that in 2006 it reopened, and is still going strong.
