  • Price band: 3/4
  • Critics choice

The Fantasticks

  • Price band: 2/4

Whatever magic this semiprecious 1960 musical must once have had is in woefully short supply in this flimsy tourist-trap revival. The show’s earnestly whimsical tone has not aged well, and is poorly served by the shabby Snapple Theater Center.—Adam Feldman
