The Fantasticks

Trivia & History

"Abductions (and So Forth)" replaced "It Depends on What You Pay" for the 1990 tour. With the subject of rape being such a sensitive one it was decided to change the subject to abduction. The music used is based upon the "Rape Ballet" whose title was changed to "Abduction Ballet". While no one was ever offended in the thirty years the show played at the Sullivan Street Playhouse, it was decided to make this an alternate song and title for those who wished to use it, even though the original song was not about real rape.


The first production took place at Barnard University's Minor Latham Theatre as a one-act.
