A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum

Laugh out loud at this big, bawdy, boisterous musical comedy “A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum.” Featuring music and lyrics from Stephen Sondheim and a book by Burt Shevelove and Larry Gelbart, “Forum” won six Tony Awards after premiering on Broadway in 1962, and enjoyed an impressive 964-performance run. A nonstop laughfest featuring more than a dozen toga-clad actors and a full orchestra, the musical tells the story of Pseudolus, a crafty Roman slave who struggles to win the hand of a beautiful but slow-witted courtesan named Philia for his young master, Hero, in exchange for his freedom. The musical includes an avalanche of puns, slamming doors, pratfalls, cases of mistaken identity, satirical comments on social class … and unforgettable music. “Something for everyone, a comedy tonight!”
