It's "comedy tonight" in Stephen Sondheim's laugh-out-loud musical, A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum. Travel with Heritage Players to ancient Rome and experience the zany antics of Pseudolus, a slave on a quest for freedom. This slapstick musical sings and dances its way through mistaken identities, a house full of courtesans and an elaborate web of lies that all lead to an uproarious night in the theater. The winner of six Tony Awards, this is one of the funniest musicals ever written. Sondheim and comic writer Larry Gelbart (M*A*S*H, Tootsie) seamlessly combine situations from the timeless comedies of Roman playwright Plautus with the fast-paced, slapstick energy of classic vaudeville to create a nonstop entertainment extravaganza.

Stephen Michael Deininger and Brett Hurt had beautiful voices and were a pleasure to enjoy. The audience clapped after each solo and it distracted from the continuity of the play much the same as clapping during a pause in a concert piece. The flow would have been better appreciated sans the clapping and it would have seemed more like a play than a song concert. When the actors entered more immediately it did not occur as there was no pause.
The music stand light of the Bass was very annoying and the seats inappropriate for enduring 80 minutes without a break. Next time at thia theatre I will bring a cushion.
