It's "comedy tonight" in Stephen Sondheim's laugh-out-loud musical, A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum. In this season opener, travel with STAGEStheatre 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. The winner of six Tony Awards, this is one of the funniest musicals ever written. 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
STAGEStheatre presents At the Arches, written and directed by Terry McNicol. STAGES has a well-known penchant to produce original works by local playwrights. McNicol, a long-time contributor at STAGEStheatre, returns with a new piece set at Newport Pier that regales the reunion of three friends who declare that the worst day fishing is better than the best day working.
A peaceful reunion at a favorite fishing spot turns into "The Fishermen vs. The Elks"-- Elks Club, that is. Several STAGES regulars grace the stage along with a few new faces. Don't miss the hilarious array of Newport Beach characters who live their lives At the Arches.
