Try to Remember – A September 11th Musical Interlude

The Fantasticks was a wildly successful off-Broadway musical. It ran for 42 years. It was forced to interrupt performances due to the September 11th attacks, and when they tried to reopen, in 2002, they couldn’t get past this number. Though in recent years, I think we’ve forgotten about September 11th.

Try to remember the kind of September
When life was slow and oh, so mellow.
Try to remember the kind of September
When grass was green and grain was yellow.
Try to remember the kind of September
When you were a tender and callow fellow.
Try to remember, and if you remember,
Then follow.

This is “Try to Remember” performed by Josh Groban. It was originally written for the musical, The Fantasticks, which opened in 1960.
