GREAT 2 film set. From 1972 'Man of La Mancha' is high quality, but pretty esoteric and mixes the plot at multiple levels which made it a bit hard for me to follow, but definitely worth a watch (two for me so far).
Released in 2000 'Fantasticks' was a fab over the top vaudevillian romance involving two country male led families and their children whom the whack fathers want to 'bring together'. Terrific cinematography, dancing and singing - everything.

With little regard to critics, this remains a favorite for me. The songs/tunes will always be with me. O'Toole is a master of his art; Loren may not be a singer, but she's a classic icon & a pleasure to behold.

Good story. While neither were terrible, neither O'Toole nor Lauren were well-cast. Lauren could have cried and sang better. O'Toole could have sang better.

That said, I love the story and three of the songs (Don Quioxte; Dulcinea; Dream). I would probably see it again.
