It's "comedy tonight" in Stephen Sondheim's laugh-out-loud 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. 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 enjoyed this production. I loved ths singing most of all! There were some funny parts too. I thought the main character, Ponce, did an EXCELLENT job in his character. He didn't ever seem to break character at all. His love in the show was also excellent. The CEO and his woman friends were also very good. I thought these characters were great! There was even live music to the play which I thought was an excellent touch. Good music and dancing. There are only a couple of gripes... a couple of errors, the manager of the play came out in a dirty outfit which I thought extremely unprofessional, and some of the actors didn't have strong characters. But again, the singing was fantastic, especially in a few of the numbers with Ponce, and the storyline was cute. I liked the love parts especially.
