During its original run at the Sullivan Street Playhouse in Greenwich Village, The Fantasticks logged a record-breaking 17,162 performances.

A recent job posting at Netflix has some GOP/Q/Right Wing Extremist brains exploding as Netflix lays it on the line in the job ad saying that: “Depending on your role, you may need to work on titles you perceive to be harmful. If you’d find it hard to support our content breadth, Netflix may not be the best place for you.”
