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.

I thought this would be cheesy, but I wanted to give it a shot because I'm a big fan of this show. WOW! It blew my mind how awesome the acting was and how awesome (and subtle) the set was. I don't regret this and I hope that in the future the theater co. does another 4 diff. episodes! :)
Two thumbs way up!
You unlock this door with the key of imagination. Beyond it is another dimension, a dimension of sound, a dimension of sight, a dimension of mind. You are moving into a land of both shadow and substance, of things and ideas. You've just crossed over into The Twilight Zone. This popular, critically-acclaimed theatrical adaptation of Rod Serling's classic TV series with episodes by Rod Serling and Charles Beaumont features various self-contained stories, in an exciting mixture of fantasy, science fiction, suspense and horror, all of which lead to a deeper realization about human nature.
Originally airing 1959-1964, the television series is still running marathons during holiday weekends, which is what inspired, directors, Darri Kristin and David Campos to bring the episodes to the stage. “It wasn’t merely the nostalgia aspect of the project, though, like a lot of people I can easily recall episodes, characters, and even lines that left an impression on me. It was really that Serling was able to expose our darkest fears and turn our belief system on end. I think that’s why people are so drawn to the series fifty years later.”
This new installment of The Twilight Zone will present four episodes:
People are Alike All Over -- When a space expedition crashes on Mars, Sam Conrad is terrified when he encounters Martians. To his initial relief, they are human, extremely friendly and apparently just like us.
A Kind of Stopwatch -- The world's biggest bore and avid talker gets a magical stopwatch that can stop everything except him. But when he misuses it, a wonderful conversation piece becomes a real party killer.
The Obsolete Man -- In a future where religion and books have been banned, a librarian is judged obsolete by the Chancellor and sentenced to death.
Living Doll -- Erich is displeased when his wife buys an expensive doll for his step-daughter. He becomes even more displeased when the doll tells him she doesn't like him!
