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'd give this play 10 STARS!
I LOVED this play, the music was fantastic! All of the cast had GREAT voices & could really harmonize, probably better then the real Andrew Sisters!! My dad (80), & friend (65) loved it as well as I (54) did, the OLDIE songs... 1945 era. Recommend it to all, don't miss it! Welks always puts on top notch! Worth every penny!
Okay… you’re in the South Pacific during WWII, anxiously awaiting the USO show. On the bill are the Andrews Sisters and a pin-up girl a la Betty Grable. Trouble ensues and… let’s just say that you should be prepared for plenty of Lucille Ball shenanigans, some boogie-woogie antics and goofy hijinks reminiscent of the Bing Crosby/Bob Hope road movies. Then, slap some brassy big band music onto the slapstick and you’ll be ready for_ The Andrews Brothers_. Travel down memory lane while you “Ac-cen-tchu-ate the Positive”!
