The Fantasticks. It fits everything.
El Gallo - Baritone
Luisa - Soprano
Matt - Baritone
Bellomy - Baritone
Hucklebee - Baritone/Tenor
Henry - Non-singing
Mortimer - Non-singing
The Mute - Non-speaking & Non-singing (acts as "The Wall," sets the scenes, hands out props, etc.)
-The music is amazing, the story is touching, the characters are easy to relate to, it is the longest-running show ever, it's funny, happy, sad, everything.
-It is a minimalist show, so there is virtually no set, only a few props, and for the most part simple costumes.
-The show can be set in any time period, or in an ambiguous, timeless style.
-The original orchestration was for only piano and harp, and the harp parts can be played on piano.
-The ideal setting is small (150 seats or fewer), and needs no mics.
-Lights are probably the most complicated thing about the show, as they set the scenes, tone, and mood because of the minimalist set.
-The two fathers (Hucklebee and Bellomy) can be changed to two mothers with a few minor changes to the script, and the mute can be either male or female.
