Broadway's greatest farce is fast-paced, witty, irreverent and one of the funniest musicals ever written. A Funny Thing That Happened on the Way to the Forum takes comedy back to its root, combining situations from the 2000-year-old comedies of Roman playwright, Plautus, with the infectious energy of classic vaudeville.
A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum is a nonstop laughfest 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 hysterical musical offers "something for everyone, a comedy tonight!"
