It's "comedy tonight" in Stephen Sondheim's laugh-out-loud, six-time Tony-winning 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. 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.

I know everybody did the best they could. I would go back and see it again with different actors. The backdrop (the Grease setup props) did not add to the overall stage performance. I would like to see it with different singers. We were sitting in the last row and sometimes we could not understand what was said.
The person who played the lead was the best! The others were very good.
I think the biggest problem I had was the stage props. The Grease stage props did not do anything for me.
So, in a score from A to F, I would give it a B. The stage prop gets an "D"!
The Order of the Little Sisters of Hoboken lacks the money to bury the remaining four of 52 nuns who have died from eating contaminated vichyssoise prepared by the convent chef, Sister Julia, Child of God. It seems Mother Superior has purchased a VCR and a camcorder with the rest of the funds and the four remaining dearly departed have been stored in the convent’s deep freeze. The five surviving nuns decide to put on a musical to raise burial money before the Hoboken Board of Health descends on them.
