A reworked West End production of The Fantasticks celebrated its opening night at the refurbished Duchess Theatre last night (9 June 2010, previews from 24 May).

The record-breaking Off-Broadway musical, which has been running for more than 42 years in New York, has been re-envisioned by Japanese collaborators – director and choreographer Amon Miyamoto and designer Rumi Matsui – and is performed by an all-British cast – Clive Rowe, David Burt, Hadley Fraser, Edward Petherbridge, Paul Hunter, Lorna Want, Luke Brady and Carl Au.
