Live Arts Maryland continues the second half of its 2022-2023 season with two Broadway in Annapolis performances of “The Fantasticks” on Friday and Saturday, February, 17 and 18 at 8:00pm, at Maryland Hall for the Creative Arts. Since its opening in May 1960 at the Sullivan Street Playhouse in New York and its subsequent revival at the Snapple Theatre Center, “The Fantasticks” has become the longest running production of any kind in the history of American theatre. The Fantasticks is an unusual love story set about by two meddling parents and features the iconic song “Try to Remember.”
