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.

We really enjoyed this show. It was a very creative adaptation of the original movie and truly "laugh out loud" funny. Don't be fooled by the fact that it's held at the Lawrence Welk Resort. Adults of all ages were in attendance. There were enough adult-only humor and situations to understand why children are not welcome to attend.
This award-winning British film began its evolution to the eventual The Full Monty by incorporating the label “Chippendales” in the title. Creators opted, instead, for an honest story about an unemployment-ravaged town (later adapted to Buffalo, NY) and its workers’ fears, self-consciousness and personal worth. Critics describe the show as “delightfully bawdy” and a “rare crowd-pleaser.” Locals may remember that this musical began its journey to Broadway at the Old Globe Theatre in Balboa Park. Consequently, audiences eagerly await its return to San Diego so they can personally answer the question, “Will they or won’t they?”
