Sondheim’s joyous, musical romp through Rome has desperate lovers, scheming neighbors and secrets behind every toga. Broadway’s greatest farce is light, fast-paced, witty, irreverent and one the funniest musicals ever written. A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum is a nonstop 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 twist and turns with cases of mistaken identity, slamming doors and a showgirl or two. This unforgettable, hysterical musical allows a terrific ensemble of comedic actors to shine -“something for everyone, a comedy tonight!”
