He created a revolution in the American musical theatre when he wrote the lyrics for The Fantasticks, the longest running musical in New York City history. And, as if that wasn’t enough, Tom Jones also wrote the lyrics to such musicals as 110 In The Shade, I Do! I Do!, Celebration, Harold and Maude, and more!

Tom pulls back the curtain on his career to discuss how he first met Harvey Schmidt, what it was like creating The Fantasticks, and why he doesn’t think he will ever retire.

Also, Tom shines the spotlight on Mary Martin, Robert Preston, and Gower Champion!
