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.

my companions and i truly enjoyed this excellent production of thorougly modern millie. universally, the cast was bright, energetic, large venue quality performers and because they seemed to enjoy what the were doing, the audience enjoyed.
Thoroughly Modern Millie takes audiences on a fun-filled ride back in time and drops them off in the middle of the Roaring Twenties. This singing, dancing, romancing musical takes place in Manhattan, with all the Jazz-Age razzmatazz one could want in a big bright, brand-new Broadway blockbuster.
It’s the story of a Midwestern girl who arrives in New York determined to take the town by storm. Winner of the 2002 Tony Award and Drama Desk Award for Best Musical, Thoroughly Modern Millie is filled with frisky flappers, dashing leading men and a dragon-lady of a villainess that audiences will love to hate.
The score includes great musical numbers like “Only in New York,” “Gimme Gimme,” “Not for the Life of Me” and “I’m Falling in Love with Someone.” Showstopping songs, dance routines and plenty of comedy prove that they do make musicals like they used to!
