It's "comedy tonight" in Stephen Sondheim's laugh-out-loud musical, A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum. Travel 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.

Follies concerns a group of former “Follies” stars who return to the site of their former glory, the Weismann Theatre, which is about to be demolished. Old wounds resurface as two Follies stars (Phyllis [Allison Lizzi] and Sally [Lenore Sebastian]) and their husbands (Benjamin [John Haine] and Buddy [Rand Martin]) reassess their lives and what could have been as they come face-to-face with the ghosts of their young selves (Turtle Akona as Young Ben; Tomas Eredia as Young Buddy; Caitland Martin as Young Sally; and Michele Guerrieri as Young Phyllis).
