Eric McCormack, who last year received the Stratford Festival Legacy Award, will return to the Stratford this fall for a one-night-only concert staging of The Fantasticks.
The Will & Grace star will appear as El Gallo in The Fantasticks in Concert October 30 at 8 PM at the Avon Theatre in Ontario. The evening will be directed by Richard Ouzounian (who directed McCormack as Demetrius in A Midsummer Night’s Dream in 1989), with musical supervision by Franklin Brasz. McCormack will be joined by members of the Festival company.
Tom Jones and the late Harvey Schmidt's The Fantasticks, which went on to become Off-Broadway's longest-running musical, premiered in 1960 with songs like “Try to Remember” and “Soon It’s Gonna Rain.”
Certain language and situations have been changed to reflect the evolving social awareness and attitudes of a 21st-century audience.
