Prof. Rebecca Nesvet’s (Humanities) article “Mocking Andromeda in Julia Constance Fletcher’s The Fantasticks” has been accepted for publication in the journal Cahiers victoriens et édouardiens. The article concerns Midwestern American writer Julia Constance Fletcher’s play The Fantasticks (1900), which Fletcher adapted from Edmond Rostand’s comedy Les Romanesques (1894). An American musical adaptation of The Fantasticks, which is closely derived from Fletcher’s script but doesn’t credit her, is one the most frequently produced plays in the world, having run Off-Broadway for over fifty years and had over eleven thousand other productions, so Fletcher is an important if neglected author. Next semester, English and BFA capstone students will create an original edition of works by Fletcher and her friend and fellow playwright Oscar Wilde.
