Tom Jones of The Fantasticks
An Interview with Tom Jones

In an interview with The Fantasticks’ Tom Jones last week, Seattle theatre writer John Longenbaugh tried to nail down what makes The Fantasticks such an "amazing show.” The insightful discussion ranged from the origins of The Fantasticks before the original off-Broadway run to Jones' continued involvement in the show and beyond. Long-time fans may find the discussion of the decision to change the final line to be of particular interest, as well as Jones’ description of The Fantasticks as “a celebration of the theatre.”

"A Fabled Run" - 20,000 Performances Tonight!

Tom Jones in an excerpt from The New York Daily News, Sept 15. 2013: "I was in the original cast in 1960 and I returned to play the same role on the 50th anniversary," he says. "As I crawled out of the old theatrical trunk to make my entrance, I was suddenly struck by the realization that everything was the same. The world around us had undergone vast changes," Jones continues. "So many of my friends and fellow actors had passed away. But this tale we were telling, this parable about growing up, was still able to touch people, to make them laugh and weep, after all these years. And I was very moved by that."
