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.

Reviews & Ratings
This high-energy musical revue takes audiences on an exciting journey through the enduring classics of rhythm and blues, pop, jazz, cabaret and, perhaps most notably, rock and roll. In an idealized 1950s setting, the classic themes of love won, lost and imagined blend with hilarious set-pieces and slice-of-life emotions. With nearly 40 of the greatest songs ever recorded, such as “On Broadway,” “Jailhouse Rock,” “Hound Dog,” “Fools Fall in Love” and “Stand by Me,” Smokey Joe’s Cafe is electrifying and compelling musical theatre featuring the songs of Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductees Jerry Leiber and Mike Stoller.
