The stage was tiny, but the comedy was broad. Many VERY talented performers and one of Sondheim's most accessible scores made for a delightful evening. Kevine McDonald as a rubberfaced and wiry Pseudolus led a stageful of wacky characters. Phillia and Hero were in excellent voice, as was Milos Gloriosus. The woman who played Lycus was, literally, a scream, prancing around like a cross between David Bowie and the NBC peacock and everyone in the cast seemed to "get it." .
A fun evening!

The lead players in this production were excellent - very funny, excellent voices. I really enjoyed the evening! And the proceeds go to an very good cause, so you should definitely attend and donate to the Lupus Foundation.
Broadway’s greatest farce is light, fast-paced, witty, irreverent and one of the funniest musicals ever written. In “A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum,” a crafty slave struggles to win the hand of a beautiful but slow-witted courtesan for his young master, in exchange for his freedom. Taking comedy back to its roots, this Stephen Sondheim musical fuses 2,000 year-old Roman comedies with the infectious energy of classic vaudeville- and the result is non-stop laughter!
