"A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum"
Broadway's greatest farce is light, fast-paced, witty, irreverent and one of the funniest musicals ever written.
A FUNNY THING HAPPENED ON THE WAY TO THE FORUM takes comedy back to its roots, combining situations from time-tested, 2000 year old comedies of Roman playwright Plautus with the infectious energy of classic vaudeville.
The show is a non-stop laugh-fest in which Pseudolus, a crafty slave, struggles to win the hand of a beautiful but slow-witted courtesan named Philia, for his young master, Hero, in exchange for freedom. The plot twists and turns with cases of mistaken identity, slamming doors, and a showgirl or two. This unforgettable, hysterical musical allows our terrific ensemble of comedic actors to shine--"something for everyone, a comedy tonight!"
